WVUE’s late fringe sports programming is a hit for viewers, beating the kings of comedy, Kimmel, Colbert and Fallon. See how WVUE is promoting these sports specials almost every night of the week.
“At a time when you see many stations around the country cutting their sports departments and programming, ours is growing and with great results,” said Blaine Strawn in an email to share the news that WVUE’s latenight sports programs are winning their time periods Sunday through Friday. WVUE is the Raycom Fox affiliate in New Orleans, and Strawn is WVUE’s marketing director.
“In fact, all of our late fringe sports shows win their respective time periods. Beating Kimmel, Colbert and Fallon, and it’s not even close. We do five weekly sports programs all at 10:35 p.m.”
