Casey shuffle continues: WESH moves Wimbledon to CW18

Our Sponsors

If you want to spend mornings or afternoons watching NBC’s Wimbledon coverage next week, don’t bother tuning to WESH 2.

The local peacock affiliate plans to stick with its non-stop Casey Anthony trial coverage and will move the tennis matches from the All-England club to sister station WKCF-CW 18.

According to a WESH news release, “Wimbledon updates during late-night programming will remain on WESH-TV, which will delay NBC’s overnight programming during the week.”

Only the men’s final on Sunday, July 3, is scheduled to air on WESH 2 — that is, of course, unless Judge Belvin Perry decides to hold a Sunday session in the Casey Anthony trial.

  1. As an NBC affiliate, You should be obligated to fulfill major sporting event contracts. (The AFL
    playoffs and WIMBLEDON are major sporting events). If NBC can’t handle this, leave it to ESPN.
