FIRST ON THE BLOG: A small change to report from Central Kentucky and its a discontinuation.
Just recently, WLEX 18 has discontinued its half-hour 4:30pm newscast. LEX 18 News at 4:30 is now replaced by Inside Edition and that was the show’s previous timeslot until the station added a 4:30pm newscast last year. The station now reverses course as the program goes from 7:30 back to 4:30pm as the station recently introduced a new talk show at 7:30pm called Hey Kentucky, hosted by Matt Jones.
Because of these moves, WLEX 18 now airs local news from 4:00-4:30, 5:00-6:30 and 7:00-7:30pm with Inside Edition back at the 4:30pm timeslot. Because of this drop, WKYT 27 (CBS) is once again home to the area’s ONLY local newscast on at 4:30pm.
There is a huge expansion in St. Joseph and that story is to come later in the day on the blog so stay tuned.
