WJBK, WDIV duke it out on Web

In this corner, it’s Fox-owned WJBK-TV – in the other corner, it’s Post-Newsweek’s NBC affiliate WDIV – and they are boxing to see who will come out on top in the ultimate battle to become Detroit’s ultimate website champion… (don’t count out the spoiler, either – ABC affiliate WXYZ-TV.)

Both stations are upping the ante, including streaming their newscasts (WDIV streams its noon and 4 p.m. newscasts on the Web already, while WJBK plans to stream all of its newscasts online beginning with the debut of its 11 p.m. newscast on Sept. 24)
WJBK usually leads in the mornings, with WXYZ leading at 5 p.m. and WDIV leading at 11 p.m. The 6 p.m. race is a tight one with WDIV and WXYZ often in a very close race. CBS-owned WWJ-TV (say it with me, everybody) does not do news.
