KMGH to Move Dr. Oz to 4pm, “7News Now” to 3pm, Inside Edition to 3:30 (Updated)

In what is likely a response to KCNC’s replacing of Oprah with 4pm news, KMGH announced in a press release on its website today that it is moving “7News Now” to the 3pm hour, followed by “Inside Edition” at 3:30, with “Dr. Oz” moving to 4pm. This change starts May 26th. It does not really imply when this change will occur. Here’s more from the press release:

The new lineup gives 7NEWS viewers the first look at news and weather at 3 p.m. with 7NEWS Now at 3PM. This earlier news program offers Denver audiences the day’s top stories delivered by 7NEWS veteran news team Anne Trujillo, Mike Landess and Colorado’s most trusted meteorologist Mike Nelson.

“We’re eager to provide a great local newscast to the community at 3 p.m. — when news is always breaking. And we’re excited to open up a new time period to showcase meaningful stories to the news audience,” said KMGH-TV news director Jeff Harris.

I think it’s a great idea to move to the 3pm hour. It allows KMGH to have the hour to themselves, and it makes the 4pm hour a little less crowded. What I don’t like, however, is that the hour-long newscast is being shortened to 30 minutes.
