KPRC Expands 4 P.M. Newscast To One Hour
Graham Media’s NBC affiliate KPRC Houston (DMA 7) has expanded its KPRC 2 News at 4 p.m., anchored by Keith Garvin and Christine Noël, to one full hour starting Monday, Sept. 23. The extended newscast will leadoff a two-and-a-half hour news block with KPRC 2 News at 4, KPRC 2 News at 5, NBC Nightly News at 5:30 and KPRC 2 News at 6.
The new newscast will feature an expanded focus on community, health, lifestyle and digital trending stories, along with extensive weather, traffic and coverage of the news of the day. Consumer news will be another key focus of the newscast, with a new consumer reporter to soon be named.
“The expansion of our KPRC 2 News at 4 feels like a logical progression for us,” says KPRC VP-GM Jerry Martin. “This will provide us the time to dig deeper into stories affecting our communities.”
