Is Fox 26 KRIV getting a new newscast?

UPDATE (6/14/2012):
Fox 26 KRIV adds new weekend newscasts

Just when you thought Houston had a lot of newscasts...guess what...the TV market could be getting some more.

I hear a lot of rumors about Fox 26 KRIV getting not one, but two new weekend newscasts. That would be a morning and an early evening show. But before recent college graduates start sending tapes, it appears there will not be any new hires immediately if these rumors are in fact true.

While things like the possibility of a new newscast in the TV news world are often discussed, debated, cancelled, brought back, moved...look for a possible early July launch - if these news shows actually are for real.

A Fox Broadcasting spokesperson told me, "there is nothing to announce at this time."

Stay tuned.

What I can tell you with certainty is that Fox 26 will get a brand spanking new website. You can see what it will look like at KDFW 4's recently re-designed WorldNow site. CONTACT: Leave me a Houston or Texas media news tip | COMMENT: Click to leave your thoughts on this post here
