FIRST ON THE BLOG: A small change that’s noticed by a few, but for those in Southern Maine, its probably noticed by many.
Last Friday December 23rd was the final edition for WPFO 23’s half-hour weeknight newscast at 6:30pm that was produced by its sister station WGME 13. FOX 23 News at 6:30 was cancelled after being on air for two years, from September of 2014 until last week. This now leaves the market with NO local newscast on at 6:30pm.
Considering that the majority would watch the big three for local news instead of the FOX affiliate, poor viewing figures may have caused the cancellation of this newscast and it was the first such attempt at local news at 6:30pm in Southern Maine, but I guess it didn’t work well at all. The newscast has since been replaced by an episode of longtime syndicated sitcom Seinfeld.
Other than that, there are no other major additions or expansions to report on at this time.
