CW's KPLR-TV Changes Times, Expands News

Bucking the time zone, KPLR-TV, Tribune’s CW affiliate, is moving its 9 p.m. half-hour news to 7 p.m. and expanding the newscast to an hour. Beginning Sept. 8, CW network programming will clear as if KPLR were in the Eastern, not the Central Time Zone, at 8 p.m.
KPLR’s newscast will be the only prime time newscast in the market.
