KPRC 2 launches noon newscast

KPRC 2 expands mid-day newscast from 11am to 12:30pm with only hour and a half block of news in Houston

Thanks to one of my eagle-eyed blog commenters, we learn that KPRC 2 has launched a new noon newscast today with anchor Andy Cerota and meteorologist Britta Merwin.

That means the Houston NBC affiliate now has an hour and a half news block for the mid-day slot, since it already has an hour long 11am show.

KPRC now leads the mid-day news war in terms of amount of news offered.

As far as the rest of its television schedule, KPRC now airs:
- The Insider at 12:30pm.
- Days of Our Lives remains in the 1pm slot
- The Meredith Vieira Show moves to 2pm.
- Dr. Phil stays at 3pm.
- Then comes more news with KPRC 2 News at 4.

So how long till the other Houston stations copy this news increase? It might be hard to offer a news counter since the other stations could be more constrained by their particular network schedule and demands.


That's a wrap folks! 1st @KPRC2 noon newscast with kprc2 Britta Merwin is in the history books. #kprc2
