7 News Today in New England will be expanding to the 9am hour beginning on August 22nd. According to a recent promo and various rumblings throughout the Boston TV News community, the morning newscast will expand from its current timeslot of 5-7 a.m. to the 9-10 a.m. hour. This move comes after the departure of Live! with Regis and Kelly and the subsequent move to WCVB.
Also, Thursday night will be Frances Rivera’s last day at 7 Bulfinch Place. As we reported earlier, the popular lead anchor at channel 7 will make the move to New York City where she will serve as the morning anchor at WPIX, NYC’s affiliate of The CW.
