KOAA cuts 4 p.m. and goes to "9 at 9"

If you're a fan of KOAA's 4 p.m. News First Now newscast (and the Gazette spots on it), you better watch today - it's the last one.

The station is cutting the 4 p.m. and cutting back the 9 p.m. News First Now newscast to 9 minutes. Or, "9 minutes at 9 p.m. on Comcast channel 9" as KOAA put it. What's the numerical equivalent of alliteration?

Laura Rojas and Mike Madson will still helm the mini-cast. Rojas will add health and wellness reporting to her anchor duties. Madson will be... I'm not sure, but presumably not twiddling his thumbs 7 hours and 51 minutes a day.

I think what everyone really wants to know is, "What happens to the Gazette news update at 4:13 p.m.?" Won't someone please think of the children?
