FIRST ON THE BLOG: A small change to report from the Western Carolinas. Its small because this took place on Saturdays.
Just recently, WSPA 7 moved its half-hour Saturday newscast at 6:00 p.m. to an hour later at 7:00 p.m. I guess the reasoning is to take a unique opportunity. Also, this provides an alternative because while WYFF 4 (NBC) and WLOS 13 (ABC) air their Saturday news at 6:00 p.m., WSPA will instead air an episode of The Andy Griffith Show at that time. It also airs another episode at 7:30 p.m., right after the 7:00 p.m. news so its a double bill in between the CBS Weekend News and WSPA’s Saturday news at 7:00 p.m.
No other changes have been made in other stations across the market. However, there are some more minor changes to report on but its two stations under one market so it’ll come under the next post so stay tuned.
