Adding News in the Twin Cities

KARE in Minneapolis is tacking on a new newscast at 6:30PM and pushing Entertainment Tonight to the side.

Weekend anchor Rena Sarigianopoulos (pictured) and Reporter/Anchor fill Jana Shortal are co-anchoring a new broadcast.

“It’s going to be great. I’m very, very excited,” Sarigianopoulos said Monday. “Julie [Nelson] and Randy [Shaver] will do from 6 to 6:30, and Jana and I will do from 6:30 to 7 p.m.”

Kare now joins KSTP in the 6:30PM news game, leaving WCCO the only one not doing news at 6:30.

“I know, people will miss ‘Entertainment Tonight,’ ” said Sarigianopoulos, “but I promise, Jana is very entertaining.”

And really, when it comes to TV news, "Entertaining" is all viewers want.
