FIRST ON THE BLOG: A small change to report from Central Washington and this involves one of the three sets of stations in the market.
It seems like KAPP 35 and KVEW 42 has expanded its weekday morning newscast, Your Local ABC News – Good Morning Northwest, to an extra half-hour starting earlier now at 5:00am. The program was previously starting at 5:30am and it now starts against KIMA 29 and KEPR 19 (CBS)’s weekday morning newscast which also starts at 5:00am. Only the NBC set of KNDO 23 and KNDU 25 starts their weekday morning newscast at 4:30am.
The newscast is anchored by Jade Redinger with Weather from Chief Meteorologist Kristin Walls and LIVE morning reports from Bary Roy. Other than this newscast, it only offers half-hour weeknight-only news at 5:00 and 6:30pm and a 5-minute local news brief at 11:00pm. It doesn’t offer any weekend newscasts, whatsoever.
Other than that, there are no other major additions or expansions to report on at this time.
