FTVLive FIRST told you last week that Tegna was quietly shooting a pilot newscast at WKYC in Cleveland.
The company brought in talent from other Tegna stations to shoot the pilot that is for a new late newscast and is using the working title of “Open Minds Tonight.”
Sources now tell FTVLive that Cleveland wasn’t the only place a pilot was being worked on. Word is that Tegna’s KVUE in Austin also quietly shot a pilot newscast.
“The pilot had a lot of anchor banter and not much news,” said a source.
KVUE’s late newscast has dropped significantly in the ratings.
Word is that management is looking at possible talent changes at the station.
