Tacking on More News in Des Moines

KCCI says they are going to add more news to their line-up.

The station is adding a 9PM newscast, but it will be on their smaller sister station. 

The half hour-long "KCCI 8 News at 9" will air seven days a week on MeTV, the CBS affiliate's sister channel, and will be anchored by Shaina Humphries, who is currently the station's morning anchor.

The show will launch its first newscast on March 21.

The newscast will compete with WHO, which airs a newscast at 9 p.m. each night on KDSM.

“KCCI is committed to being Iowa’s News Leader and we want to make our No. 1 coverage as available as possible to our viewers,” KCCI-TV President and General Manager Brian Sather said in a statement. “We know people are looking for news all day long."

How they know that? We have no idea and we're fairly certain they don't either.
