'Today' expansion will affect Channel 4's 'Morning Blend,' newscast

The launch of the fourth hour of "Today" next month will shuffle Channel 4's daytime schedule, with the 11 a.m. newscast moving to noon.

Starting Sept. 10, the locally produced "Morning Blend" moves up an hour to 9 a.m., followed at 10 by hours three and four of "Today."

The final two hours of "Today" will be delayed two hours from their live airing. For the record, the first two hours of "Today," from 7 to 9 a.m., are delayed an hour from their East Coast airing.

Channel 4's hour of news at noon will directly take on Channel 6's half-hour noon newscast.

"Days of Our Lives" moves to 1 p.m. on Sept. 10. While it has aired for many years in the noon slot, "Days" actually premiered on Channel 4 in the 1 p.m. slot on Nov. 8, 1965, according to TV listings.

A key part of the morning changes on Channel 4 comes from the demise, or sort of demise, of "Passions."

The 8-year-old soap is being dropped by NBC as of Sept. 10. But it has an afterlife on DirecTV, starting the following Monday on the satellite system's Channel 101. It will still air at 1 p.m. weekdays, with weekend repeats.
