The 30-minute newscast will be divided into three segments. First, the ‘Nine at 10″ starts the broadcast with the top news stories in 9 minutes. Sound familiar?
Over at WPIX/Channel 11, management runs the “11 Stories in 11 Minutes” at the beginning of their newscast.
Back at WWOR, segment two is “Take it On” –an issue-oriented debate featuring guest contributors and in-depth discussions about the day’s headlines.
The Ten O’Clock News concludes with “The Two-Minute Drill,” although the better title might be ”Short Shrift.”
At sister station WNYW/Channel 5, it’s still an odd sight to see Salzberg get the satellite handoff from anchors Ernie Anastos and Dari Alexander, and close out the newscast with a one-minute sports report.
WPIX also gives sports about 60 seconds each night, but quick headlines, brief scoreboard–and most importantly only news anchor Jodi Applegate giving the information.
