FIRST ON THE BLOG: Some small changes to report in two markets, mainly expansions.

Just recently, WJCL 22 has expanded its Sunday 11:00pm newscast to a full hour with WJCL 22 News at 11:35. Its now the ONLY hour-long 11:00pm newscast on Sundays in the market. It remains as a half-hour newscast at 11:00pm on Saturdays, but is temporarily moved to 11:30pm during the college football season from ESPN on ABC.

Another recent change is that KOAA 5 has added another hour of its Sunday morning newscast. News 5 Today expands to 6:00am on Sundays and becomes a two-hour morning newscast on Sundays from 6:00-8:00am. The 6:00am hour allows KOAA 5 to compete against weekend morning newscasts in the market from KRDO 13 (ABC) and KXRM 21 (FOX). The 7:00am hour remains all by themselves. On Saturdays, it remains as an hour-long newscast from 7:00-8:00am, due to the preceding Saturday edition of Today from 5:00-7:00am.

Other than that, there are no other major additions or expansions to report on at this time.

  1. No newscast expansions anywhere in the past few weeks on this blog. Newscast expansions must be in the doldrums. I think this is the longest time period this blog has not reported any newscast expansions since this last blog was posted.
