5:30pm Nfld

Little back and forth when it comes to local news in St. John’s.

Was reported over the summer that along with other CBC stations, St. John’s local news will be increased to 90 minutes at suppertime.  Link from Geoff Meeker’s blog.

Forgot to talk about how this blog got linked on Geoff’s a few weeks ago.  Talk about that tomorrow.  Back to the topic today.

Saw an ad on NTV about the fact they are also going to 90 minutes.  Glen Carter will be hosting an extra 30 minutes of news at 5:30pm local time.  NTV will start this on August 24th.  Which is a week earlier than when CBC changes.  I wonder if it was planned to get a jump on them. LOL.

Found a lot of search terms coming into this blog about NTV getting kicked off of Rogers in Ontario.  People wondering where it is, what’s going on and such.  Must be a way to rally all the people who want this fixed.  Don’t know if a Facebook group might be a good way to start.  Any ideas or suggestions leave a comment on the blog or email me

Lot of Newfoundlanders around to get Rogers attention.  And the people of Ottawa did get them to change their mind on kicking off WPBS in Watertown.

Back to reading about the rumour of Brett Favre about to sign with the Vikings.  You thought that was over?  Please.
