Assessment of the new formats (see part one for summary of the new formats):
I believe the morning news program and 12:00 p.m. news program have gotten worse and less professional ever since their new formats took effect. I wish the producers in charge of the programs would tell the news presenters and reporters for the programs to keep their personal feelings about news to their selves, keep their emotions under control while communicating with each other (no laughter, for example), and not act silly during regular features of the program (for example: Jordan Early and Kelly Jones waving their hands like a group of students during a "Cool Schools" segment).
As for the new broadcast times for the program, I believe their old time were long enough. The 12:30 p.m. timeslot for the 12:00 p.m. news program could have been used for either a syndicated program or a new local program; perhaps a local program for viewers and listeners of the station's programming to discuss topics of local interest such as local news or the station's programming. This probably would have encouraged the producers for the station's news programs to keep those programs focused on news and encouraged them to use their Internet reporters or specialists to only use comments from the station's Facebook page for the discussion program.
