FIRST ON THE BLOG: Some few changes have taken place across the country. We begin with Miami and the San Francisco Bay Area.
First, Miami. WSVN 7 has recently shifted on-air times of the Sunday edition of its morning newscast, 7 News – Today in Florida. The second hour has now been shifted to the first hour at 7:00am. This means the program now airs from 7:00-9:00am and competes against WFOR 4 (CBS), WTVJ 6 (NBC) and WPLG 10 (ABC) in the first hour while it only competes against WFOR 4 in the second hour. However, it doesn’t air at 9:00am unlike Mondays-Saturdays because it now airs FOX News Sunday on Sunday mornings at 9:00am.
Next, the Bay Area. KBCW 44 no longer airs morning news from its sister station in Sacramento. It used to air CW 31 News – Good Day Sacramento from KMAX 31 (CW) on weekdays from 7:00-10:00am and on Sundays from 8:00-11:00am. The only local news content that was available on the program was a local news ticker from KPIX 5 (CBS) scrolling on the screen but that was about it. Now it’s only KTVU 2 (FOX) and KRON 4 (MyTV) only airing local morning news after 7:00am in the market (KTVU 2 is 7:00-10:00am + 10:00-11:00am on KICU 36 – Ind and KRON 4 is 7:00-10:00am).
In the next post, minor changes in Western North Dakota and Albany.
