REGIONAL ROUNDUP April - Smaller Markets

SINCLAIR CHANGES – Statement from VP/GM John Manzi

“As it continues the evolution of its stations in Northern California, Sinclair Broadcast group is making some changes to the way it produces news to ensure long-term success. As of April 3, Eureka (KAEF) joined Chico-Redding (KRCR), teaming up as ‘The Northstate’s News’ brand.

The Eureka Market will continue to air the morning show, Daybreak, Monday through Friday from 5 to 7 a.m., which is a regional newscast covering Redding, Chico and Eureka. The company plans to add a new regional newscast on KAEF in Eureka from Monday through Friday at 5:30 p.m., as well as telecast regional newscasts Monday through Sunday at 10 p.m. on KBVU and Monday through Sunday at 11 p.m. on KAEF. Monday through Friday at 6 p.m., they will continue to produce and telecast on KAEF, a Eureka-specific newscast.

Though viewers in Eureka will see some different faces on the air, they will also continue to see familiar faces. They will receive the local news, traffic and weather affecting their communities.”
