    If you think starting news at 4:00 p.m. is early, then try starting at 3:00 p.m. WBBH is the next station to do it. (I would use my Twitter but the account is locked out at the moment).

    Can't wait to see how big the hashmark ratings will be.

    I think it’s a first in the Eastern Time Zone; the only other one I know of is WTMJ.

    They used to, but not anymore. WTMJ runs "Pickler and Ben" in that slot (according to TitanTV). They dropped the 3p newscast in 2015; this decision was in the works before Scripps bought WTMJ and the Journal stations.....

    Sinclair's CBS12 in West Palm Beach has a 3pm newscast, but it's only a half hour.

    While looking for the infamous Marvin Zindler quote, I came across this "tribute" from competitor KPRC, nearly a decade after his passing....

    Even in a consistent third place, Good Morning Texas is still a moneymaker for Channel 8. They won't get rid of that for Kelly & Ryan.

    The 4am start is one thing, but the additional hour to 10am is probably a bit much. Since Kelly & Ryan will move to 10am, it will be interesting to see what KDFW does at 11am. Wendy? The Real? I guess Uncle Barky didn't know that one yet.

    The 6 hour blocks of news on most Fox O&Os is insane. Not sure why KDFW would fix something that wasn’t broken. And how does Good Day Dallas work? Do Tim and Lauren anchor all 5 hours currently?

    Did mention Marvin Zindler in the end so it sounded like a tribute report to it.

    Sorry for the double post but, KDFW just calls it Good Day.

    Apparently, yes. However, Fox O&Os have tended to use two sets of anchors on their weekday morning newscasts in some markets (some ex-O&Os like WDAF-TV still do that as well); so it's possible that Ryan and Pryzybyl will be shifted off at least part of the 4:00 to 7:00 a.m. portion of the newscast, to make way for additional anchors. The reports did say that KDFW was planning on adding staff for the expanded broadcast.

    The only existing newscasts I would foresee KDFW expanding in the near future would be the noon news (to an hour) and the 10:00 p.m. news (to weekend evenings).

    Yep. Though the newscast was titled Good Day Dallas from c. 1997-2004.

    One problem. On Sundays, FOX 4 airs Sports Sunday with Mike Doocy at 10:00PM. Speaking of Mike Doocy, he hosting a new locally produced half-hour program called "Free 4 All" weeknights at 10:30PM this fall. The station will be dropping 10:30PM repeats of Modern Family to accommodate the new show.
