Newscasts debuting this weekend… Edition #32

Apparently, its been a long time since I’ve done one of these lists. It’s time to bring it back and here it is, a list of Newscasts debuting this Weekend. Keep an eye on any of them in case you see your market listed. Again, done by day, time zone and market size.

Saturday August 6th, 2016

  • 9:00-10:00 AM: KTLA 5 Morning News at 9:00 a.m.

KTLA in Los Angeles. The station adds a 9:00am hour to its Saturday morning newscast and now, their weekend morning newscast is on for four hours from 6:00-10:00am.

  • 6:00-6:30 PM: CBS 3 Duluth News at 6:00
  • 10:00-10:35 PM: CBS 3 Duluth News at 10:00

KBJR 6.2 and KRII 11.2 in Duluth and Chisholm. LIVE weekend newscasts for its CBS affiliate are being added for the first time I think since the closure of the original news department in 2005. Two Saturday newscasts, just like the main channels, KBJR 6 and KRII 11.

  • 10:00-10:30 PM: WSBT 22 News at 10:00 on FOX Michiana

WSBT 22.2 in South Bend. It remains as a half-hour newscast but this time, its for a FOX affiliate, not for an Independent. And it becomes produced by WSBT 22, not by WSJV 28 (which closed its news department this past weekend).

Sunday August 7th, 2016

  • 10:00-10:35 PM: CBS 3 Duluth News at 10:00

KBJR 6.2 and KRII 11.2 in Duluth and Chisholm. See above and just one Sunday newscast, just like KBJR 6.

  • 10:00-10:30 PM: WSBT 22 News at 10:00 on FOX Michiana

WSBT 22.2 in South Bend. See above.

That’s it for this weekend. There is another list for this upcoming week and I’ll bring that to you on Sunday. Have a great weekend and enjoy the first weekend of the 2016 Rio Olympic Summer Games on NBC.
