WNT Western Edition “All But Abandoned”

Buried in Rebecca Dana‘s must-read Observer piece is this nugget:

“The news division has suspended one feature of its revamped evening programming: the nightly live West Coast feed. That broadcast, at 9:30 p.m. Eastern, was meant to win over the largely untapped California audience with fresher news. But owing to the strain it put on the rotating fill-in anchors, the project has quietly been all but abandoned for now, network sources said. One recent evening, Ms. Vargas was spotted leaving the studios at 7:30 p.m.”

> An e-mailer asks: “Are any of the journalists who claimed it was so innovative going to write about its demise?”
