WCYB shortens the noon news to half-hour.

WCYB-TV 5 / Bristol, VA – Bristol – Kingsport – Johnson City, TN

FIRST ON THE BLOG: WCYB is cutting back on news apparently. News 5 at Noon has recently cut down to 30 minutes in order to make way for Judge Judy at 12:30 p.m. and now, the market has no more hour-long noon news as WCYB was the only station to do news at noon for an hour. WJHL did and still does news at noon for half an hour and now WCYB has joined them.

  • 12:00 p.m. – News 5 at Noon
  • 12:30 p.m. – Judge Judy
  • 1:00 p.m. – Days of Our Lives

Either WCYB is giving up the ratings lead or it just wanted to shorten it’s time on the newscast.
