‘Newswatch’ Switches

The ambitious, hourlong newscast that indie KTVT-TV debuted at 7 p.m. on Aug. 20, “Newswatch 11,” switched to a 9 p.m. airing on Jan. 7.

General manager Ed Trimble attributes the move to the station’s frequent airings of Texas Rangers baseball games and Dallas Mavericks basketball games, which would have preempted the newscast on a regular basis.

“Newswatch 11” replaced “Hunter” reruns on the Gaylord-owned station. It was designed to appeal to commuters who miss the 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. local newscasts.
