A small minor newscast change… #138.

KTVB 7 / Boise – Nampa – Caldwell (“Idaho’s NewsChannel 7”)
KTFT-LD 7 / Twin Falls, ID (“Idaho’s NewsChannel 7”; satellite of KTVB 7)

FIRST ON THE BLOG: A small change to report tonight from the biggest market in Idaho.

Just recently, KTVB 7 has expanded its Sunday half-hour 10:00 p.m. news to a full hour. The Sunday edition of KTVB – Idaho’s NewsChannel 7 at 10:00 now runs for a full-hour from 10:00-11:00 p.m. but remains a half-hour every other night of the week due to NBC’s Late Night programming.

This now pushes their Sunday Sports Extra by a half-hour and now airs at 11:00 p.m. right after the full hour news at 10:00 p.m. This change also affects KTFT 7 out of Twin Falls since its a low-power digital satellite of KTVB 7. Everything is identical with the exception of local commercials to target the area.

There are some other major additions and expansions happening across the country and some of those will be detailed in my next report.

  1. I gusest KTFT is identical to what KOBR-TV in Roswell and KOBF-TV is in Farmington in my market of Albuquerque both are satellite stations to main KOB-TV I think KOBF and KOBR do air their own commericals for the Four Corners Area and Roswell.
