New Hampshire’s WBIN Ends Newscasts

New Hampshire’s WBIN has ended its sole newscast, shutting down the news operation at the independent station. The Concord Monitor has details:

The weeknight news program on WBIN was broadcast Friday, but did not return Monday night. The station’s spring program lineup went into effect this week and does not include a news program.

A WBIN official declined to comment yesterday on the end of the 10 p.m. newscast. “There are strategic decisions regarding programming that we don’t discuss,” said Periklis Karoutas, the company’s vice president of political affairs and public relations.

Only one of WBIN’s three reporters is still employed at the station, Karoutas said.

Meteorologist Al Kaprielian will continue to report on the weather for WBIN, according to the Concord Monitor. The station is now airing “OMG! Insider” at 10 p.m. weeknights.

“We see a real opportunity for another important media voice in New Hampshire,” Binnie told the New Hampshire Business Review recently. “In spite of the fact that there is a great deal of media nationwide, countrywide and even in Boston, there are very few voices here in New Hampshire and we intend to be one of them.” Read more

New Hampshire’s WBIN Teams Up With Bloomberg TV For GOP Presidential Debate

WBIN, an independent station serving Boston and New Hampshire, is teaming up with Bloomberg TV and the Washington Post to present a Republican presidential debate focused on the economy.

The debate, slated for October 11, will air on both WBIN and Bloomberg TV. It will be moderated by Charlie Rose, who will ask candidates to detail their job-creation proposals while seated at a round table, surrounded by audience members at Dartmouth College.
