FIRST ON THE BLOG: It looks like one station in Tulsa has decided to expand in a place where its currently unavailable in the market.
Starting today, KJRH 2 will expand its half-hour weeknight newscast at 6:00 p.m. to a full hour. 2 News Works For You at 6:00 is now on from 6:00-7:00 p.m. and is the ONLY station in Tulsa to do so as everyone else is on at 6:00 for just a half-hour. The newscast is anchored by Karen Larsen and Brian Sanders with 2 Works For You Weather from Chief Meteorologist Mike Collier.
It seems like KJRH has moved The List from the 6:30 p.m. timeslot and has been moved to 2:00 p.m. Meanwhile, the new extension to an hour allows NBC primetime to sandwich in between both of KJRH newscasts that bookend each other, the hour-long 6:00 p.m. news and the half-hour news at 10:00 p.m. that comes on after primetime.
Other than this, there were no other changes made in the Tulsa market so now that local news at 6:30 p.m. on weeknights is available in Tulsa, it sounds pretty good, but it depends on if viewers will tune in.
