Following its acquisition of KTXL, Nexstar Will Launch Fox40 News at 7 PM, the market’s only local 7 p.m. newscast.
KIRO 7 at Seven will go in-depth, dig in to major stories, investigate important issues.
Tegna’s Atlanta MNT affiliate this week added a 7 p.m. newscast with no fanfare, replacing a repeat of The Andy Griffith Show. Two sources said the newscast is temporary and tied directly to accommodate a flood of political ads in the hotly contested House seat race that have filled the inventory on co-owned NBC affiliate WXIA. They said the newscast will end after the runoff is over June 20.
