FIRST ON THE BLOG: A small expansion is about to happen in St. Louis and its familiar territory for one station.
Starting Monday September 12th, KSDK 5 will expand its 12:00 Noon newscast once again to a full hour. NewsChannel 5 at Noon will become a full hour from 12:00-1:00pm and will compete fully against KPLR 11 (CW)’s hour-long noon newscast.
This is not the first time KSDK 5 has broadcast an hour-long noon newscast. They’ve done this twice before and twice has cut back to a half-hour to either air something else or a Paid Program. But this time, it will come back to a full hour since it would lead into The T.D. Jakes Show, a brand new syndicated program from TEGNA at 1:00pm in which would then lead into Days of Our Lives which will move to 2:00pm.
That’s all the minor changes we have to report for now. But there is a major addition coming to the Wilmington market and those details will come in my next report so stay tuned to the blog throughout the day.
