A small minor newscast change… #127.

WCYB-TV 5 / Bristol, VA – Johnson City – Kingsport – Bristol, TN (“WCYB-TV 5”)

FIRST ON THE BLOG: A small change to report from the Tri-Cities in Tennessee and Virginia.

Just recently, WCYB 5 has expanded its noon newscast to a full hour once again. News 5 at Noon now airs for a full hour on weekdays from 12:00-1:00pm. While it does compete against WJHL 11 (CBS/ABC) for local news at noon in the market, WCYB 5 has the ONLY local news on at 12:30pm.

Before the re-expansion into a full hour, the station had a half-hour of local news at noon followed by Judge Judy at 12:30pm. Considering that they also run that syndicated program at 4:00 and 4:30, WCYB 5 has scaled it back to just two episodes running every weekday.

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