KTBS Expands Evening News
A tipster tells me KTBS/Channel 3/Shreveport, expands its evening news at 6pm to one hour. Channel 11/KTHV in Little Rock did this awhile back and I was very skeptical but they have pulled it off. I think if a station does this they need to do more than the usual news. 11 added features in addition to retelling the top stories in their 630 pm newscast. I am anxious to see what KTBS can do to fill an additional 30 minutes. No doubt it will be cheaper for the station versus having to pay for a syndicated program to air in that time.
Update: Here's the lineup as of today:
4:30 Inside Edition
5:00 KTBS News
5:30 ABC Evening News
6:00 KTBS News
6:30 KTBS Extended News

New KTHV Weather Anchor
Just got in and a new weather anchor was introduced. All I caught was her last name was Beane. Will update....
This from a blog reader:
Here's what I know from watching THV2. Her name is Tracey Beene, she's from Texas. she a meteorologist for the Air Base in Jacksonville.
She's married with three children. She's is only a part-time fill in so Ed, Tom and Meridith can have vacations and time off. It was hard only
three meteorologist to cover each other with all their schedules. She's never been in television and hasn't been to broadcasting school. She has been on the air a few times in the past few weeks.
