Same News, More Coverage

Recently WTVT-Channel 13 announced that it was developing a new 11 p.m. newscast to accompany its incumbent newscasts at 6 and 10:00 p.m. It’s likely to debut before the end of the year.

I know we’re now the 12th largest TV market in America. And I’m as big an advocate of our supply-and-demand marketplace as the next guy. But can there really be a market, let alone a need, for another glibly co-anchored, news-Vipirized weather-sports triumvirate?

And even more perplexing, it replaces M*A*S*H reruns.
