Starting yesterday in Boston, Hearst’s WCVB launched a new evening news show — anchored by Maria Stephanos and Ben Simmoneau, with chief meteorologist Harvey Leonard — at 4:30 p.m. on weekdays.
The broadcast replaces “Inside Edition,” which is now banished to 1:05 a.m.
The new program now gives WCVB four consecutive hours of local news coverage.
And more news commercial inventory to sell.
Isn’t that what it’s all about?
