WLOX-CBS will be on a digital sub-channel of WLOX and will be viewed over the air, on cable and satellite, CBS said in a statement Wednesday.
The affiliation is effective April 8. David Vincent, vice president and general manager of WLOX, says it will be a week or more before they know when WLOX-CBS will go live.
WLOX-ABC will continue to broadcast.
Vincent says local news will air weekdays at 6 p.m. on WLOX-ABC and 6:30 p.m. on WLOX-CBS. He says local news will be simulcast on weekends.
Vincent says the 5-6:30 a.m. portion of WLOX’s Good Morning Mississippi and the 5-10 p.m. news broadcasts also will air on WLOX-CBS.
