UPDATED — KSN, Channel 3, news director Jason Kravarik responded to several phone calls regarding changes to the station’s 10 p.m. newscast with an apology for being late and a plea to set the record straight.
“I just want to make it clear that we’re not getting rid of the 10 o’clock news,” he says.
“We are strongly considering changes to the 10, but at this point no changes to the 5 and 6,” Kravarik says. “We have a solid team.”
That “solid team” is the same team at 10 p.m., but Kravarik says it’s not working as well then.
“The number one show for them is 6 p.m.,” he says.
“We have a, frankly, a bad lead-in from NBC, as everyone knows these days.”
Kravarik isn’t sure how he’ll proceed with changes.
“That I don’t want to comment on because nothing is finally in place.”
Even though he’s making changes, Kravarik says the current newscast isn’t bad.
“I mean, I think we put on a great 10 o’clock newscast. I think our content is solid. I’m just proud of the content upgrades we’ve made to our news in the last couple of years.”
