WBDT is expanding their 10PM newscast starting on Monday.
The show is produced be sister station WDTN and it's expanding from 30 minutes to one hour.
Why is the station expanding the newscast?
Because the viewers demanded it of course.
“The main reason for expanding 2 NEWS at 10 on Dayton’s CW to one hour is due to audience demand,” said Joe Abouzeid, WDTN & WBDT President & General Manager. “We listen to our viewers and it was clear to us that they wanted more local news and weather at a time that’s convenient to them.”
WDTN began airing newscasts on Dayton’s CW at 10 p.m. in August 2007.
Now let's see what quote the Creative Services Department made up for the News Director:
“Expanding 2 NEWS at 10 on Dayton’s CW to one hour allows the 2 NEWS team to bolster our coverage of breaking news, 2 NEWS investigations, and the best weather coverage in the market,” said Denise Eck, 2 NEWS News Director. “Our team is committed to working for our viewers and we’re excited to give them more local news and weather.”
