A small minor newscast change… #123.

KOIN 6 / Portland - Vancouver - Salem (
KOIN 6 / Portland – Vancouver – Salem (“KOIN 6”)

FIRST ON THE BLOG: A small addition is coming to Oregon’s largest market.

Starting this upcoming Saturday March 11th, KOIN 6 will be adding a half-hour weekend newscast at 5:00pm. KOIN 6 News at 5:00 on weekends will compete against KATU 2 (ABC) and KGW 8 (NBC) for local news at that time in the market. KPTV 12 (FOX) doesn’t air an early-evening weekend newscast at all.

This will create a 90-minute continuous local news block on weekends for KOIN 6 from 5:00-6:30pm, which is rare for the East Coast but more common on the West Coast due to sports programming ending earlier which makes early evening news less pre-empt on that side of the country.

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