We've seen the shift to 4:30am morning news start times in Houston and Dallas and now KVUE 24 is doing it in Austin. KVUE News Daybreak will extend its morning news by a half hour running from 4:30am to 7am.
“This underscores our continued commitment to serving the changing needs of our viewers,” says KVUE president and general manager Patti C Smith.
"KVUE sets the standard for news excellence in Austin. By adding a 4:30 am newscast, we will provide news, weather and information at a time when more and more people are depending on us," said KVUE news director Frank Volpicella. "Expanding our news is our commitment to our viewers, that KVUE is indeed Austin's news station."
The station says KVUE News Daybreak with Melissa Gale, Olga Campos and meteorologist Albert Ramon is currently the most watched morning news and information program in Austin.
Look for the time change this Fall.
