FIRST ON THE BLOG: A small change to report from Florida’s Panhandle, which also serves Lower Alabama.
FIRST ON THE BLOG: Some small changes to report on this post and I have plenty to post today but I’ll do two stations at a time. In this post, one has added a newscast and another has shortened it.
A small change to report from Lower Alabama and Western Florida Panhandle (Mobile, AL – Pensacola, FL) but its a huge one if you get your local news at this particular time.
FIRST ON THE BLOG: We were waiting for official confirmation about this, but we never got any. But thanks to tips and forums on different websites, we are no longer gonna wait.
WPMI 15 has discontinued airing the 4:30 a.m. half-hour of its weekday morning newscast, Local 15 News Today. The program is now just a 2-hour program from 5:00-7:00 a.m. and features Kelly Jones, Darwin Singleton and Meteorologist Deitra Tate.
With this discontinuation, WEAR 3 (ABC) and WALA 10 (FOX) are now left as the only 2 stations in the area to deliver a morning newscast at 4:30 a.m. while WPMI 15 now joins WKRG 5 (CBS) as the other 2 stations to start at 5:00 a.m.
Other than that, no other major additions or expansions to report at this time.
