FIRST ON THE BLOG: A small change just took place in Southwest Florida.
Just recently, WZVN 26 (Cable 7) has discontinued its half-hour weeknight newscast at 5:30pm. Titled ABC 7 News at 5:30, it seemed that WZVN 26 had sort of a return to possibly air at least an hour or even 90-minutes of local weeknight news, but that has since been scrapped.
The 5:30pm weeknight newscast has been replaced by Two and a Half Men. With this discontinuation, there are only two weeknight newscasts left at 5:30pm in Southwest Florida… WINK News at 5:30 on WINK 11 (Cable 5 – CBS) and NBC 2 News at 5:30 on WBBH 20 (Cable 2 – NBC).
Other than that, there are no other major additions or expansions to report on at this time.
