FIRST ON THE BLOG: A small change to report on from Mid-Missouri and its an expansion.
Just recently, KOMU 8 has added another hour on Saturday mornings at 6:00am. KOMU 8 News Today at 6:00am now joins the 9:00am hour on Saturdays and in both those hours, it competes against KMIZ 17 (ABC) for local morning news in both timeslots (6:00am on KMIZ 17 and 9:00am on KQFX-LD 22 – FOX) in the market.
This came after KOMU 8 added the first weekend morning newscast in the market last year, which was later followed by KMIZ 17 this year into adding its own weekend morning newscasts. This leaves KRCG 13 (CBS) as the ONLY station in the market to not air a weekend morning newscast, despite expanding into 4:30am earlier today.
Other than that, there are no other major additions or expansions to report on at this time.
