It's never a good thing when a station gives up on a newscast.  

But that is exactly what WPEC is doing in West Palm Beach. 

After 7 years, the Sinclair owned station is pulling the plug on their 7PM newscast.  

The show never did do very well in the ratings and will be replaced Entertainment Tonight. 

Gossip Extra reports that the anchors of the 7PM broadcast, Ben Becker and Stephanie Watson found out about the switch from watching the promos about ET ‘s arrival that WPEC has been airing for days.

The station has made no comment on the future of the two anchors.

Once again, it's the communications business where no one communicates.
