The 10 p.m. newscast produced by Buffalo NBC affiliate WGRZ will switch from airing on MyNetworkTV affiliate WNYO to Fox affiliate WUTV next week, according to the Buffalo Daily News‘ Alan Pergament. The newscast will also expand to seven days a week:
Effective April 8, [WGRZ]’s 10 p.m. newscast will switch from little-watched WNYO-TV to local Fox affiliate WUTV and it will expand from five nights a week to seven nights a week with the addition of weekend newscasts. Both stations are owned by Sinclair Broadcasting.
That will mean a few weeks before the start of the May sweeps, [WGRZ]’s newscast on WUTV will be getting stronger lead-ins than [WIVB]’s 10 O’Clock News gets on sister station WNLO from little-watched CW programming here.
