FIRST ON THE BLOG: A minor expansion has just taken place in Boston.
WFXT 25 has added an extra half-hour weeknight-ONLY newscast at 11:30pm. FOX 25 News at 11:30 is home to the area’s ONLY local newscast on at that time since the other stations (WBZ 4 – CBS, WCVB 5 – ABC and WHDH 7 – NBC) are going into late night programming. The newscast is anchored by Mark Ockerbloom and Vanessa Welch with FOX 25 StormTracker Weather from Chief Meteorologist Kevin Lemanowicz.
The newscast is NOT seen on weekends since the station doesn’t broadcast at 11:00pm on Saturdays and airs FOX 25 Sports Wrap at 11:30pm on Sundays after the 11:00pm newscast.
Other than that, there are no other major additions or expansions to report on at this time.
