New Year Brings Change to Idaho Falls

TVNewsCheck talks with insiders in Idaho Falls as two stations, KIDK and KIFI, prepare to enter into a shared services agreement resulting in the loss of 27 jobs at KIDK.

Although KIFI will produce KIDK-branded newscasts for KIDK, there are going to be fewer of them and they will air at times that don’t compete with KIFI newscasts, according to a KIDK employee who made the cut.

Instead of having a traditional 5 p.m. newscast, for example, KIDK will air its news at 5:30 and KIDK may also air a 9:30 p.m. newscast on the low-power MNT affiliate, KXPI, the employee said.

The KIDK morning show, Channel 3 Eyewitness News This Morning anchored by Tommy Noel and Michelle Ludka, will be nixed, the employee said, although Noel and Ludka will be keeping their jobs.

Reporters will likely appear on both stations, the employee added.
