As you may have heard, Neuhoff Communications acquired the local FOX Affiliation. Locally the station will be found over the air on channel 14. For cable and Dish Customers, here is where you can find us. (SD=Standard Defination HD=High Defination)
FOX 14 will be broadcasting in HD. We have huge plans as the new local FOX affiliate. First of all, we will be doing local news 3 times a day. Our initial newscast of the day will be at 7am. This will be a continuation of our very popular KMVT morning show, Rise and Shine. The next newscast will be at 5pm. Up until now, there has not been a local newscast option at 5pm (with the exception of KTVB and that is Boise news). The final newscast of the night will take place at 9pm. This is the traditional placement for a late newscast on a FOX affiliate since FOX Prime ends at 9pm. The 5pm and 9pm FOX newscast will be different than the 6pm and 10pm newscast on KMVT. For starters, Diane Dean will be leaving the KMVT newscasts and will solo anchor the FOX newscasts. She will be replaced on KMVT by someone I am sure you will enjoy watching. The next difference will be content. On KMVT we will continue to focus almost 100% on local news. The FOX newscast will incorporate more regional, national and international news of the day.
Most people do not know this but this year FOX set a new broadcast record by winning the #1 spot eight years in a row in the 18-49 demographic! When it comes to sports FOX is #1. Fox carries the following sports: NFC professional football, college football, NASCAR and MLB including the playoffs and World Series.
We hope you enjoy our new station and should you have any concerns please feel free to call station manager Chris Pruitt at 733-1100 or email at ChrisPruitt@NeuhoffMedia.com .
Thanks in advance for your future support of KTWT, The New FOX Affiliate for Southern Idaho!
