With the expansion of morning newscasts to their sister duopoly stations, WESH and WFTV have solidified their status as the providers of the most live local newscasts in Central Florida.
WESH 2 now produces 7-1/2 hours of local news each weekday, taking the top spot among the area stations.
WFTV is second with 6-1/2 hours of news while WOFL — which had the local morning news field to itself until Friday — is a close third with six hours of local news each weekday.
WKMG — the area’s only network station without a duopoly partner — brings up with rear with 5 hours of news a day.
Note: Central Florida News 13 broadcasts news 24 hours a day, but not all of its newscasts are live.
