WJBK back in the news game at 11

We have The Ten, they will have The Edge.

WJBK-TV, the Fox-owned station in Detroit, is returning to the 11 p.m. newscast race effective on September 24 named The Edge.

WJBK had news in the 11 p.m. slot when it was a CBS affiliate, but was moved to 10 p.m. when the station was switched to Fox by then-owner New World in December 1994. The 11 p.m. newscast often finished far behind rivals NBC affiliate WDIV and ABC affiliate WXYZ-TV.

CBS discontinued its newscasts at its owned stations, WKBD-TV and WWJ-TV in late 2002, depriving WWJ of an 11 p.m. news show. WWJ airs reruns of Everybody Loves Raymond in that time slot instead.
