WBFF Adding Newscast to Crowded 5 p.m. Time Slot

Baltimore Fox-affiliate WBFF plans to add a 5 p.m. newscast to its schedule in April, entering the station into local news competition with WBAL, WJZ, and WMAR at that time slot.

The Baltimore Sun reports that WBFF’s new 5 o’clock newscast will be anchored by Jeff Barnd and Jennifer Gilbert, who currently anchor the station’s 5:30 p.m newscast.

“I’m going to change the lineup and run ‘Judge Judy’ from 4 to 5, and run the news from 5 to 5:30, and then, 5:30 to 6,” general manager Bill Fanshawe told the Sun.
