The weeknight news program on WBIN was broadcast Friday, but did not return Monday night. The station’s spring program lineup went into effect this week and does not include a news program.
A WBIN official declined to comment yesterday on the end of the 10 p.m. newscast. “There are strategic decisions regarding programming that we don’t discuss,” said Periklis Karoutas, the company’s vice president of political affairs and public relations.
Only one of WBIN’s three reporters is still employed at the station, Karoutas said.
Meteorologist Al Kaprielian will continue to report on the weather for WBIN, according to the Concord Monitor. The station is now airing “OMG! Insider” at 10 p.m. weeknights.
