"March Madness" is here and that means another round of preemptions and delays for local news. Coverage of the college basketball tournament began shortly after the noon hour yesterday after a brief CBS 2 News at Noon newscast. The games were scheduled to go until around 5:00 but they went long, as they often do, pushing back CBS 2 News' start time to 5:20 yesterday and 6:14 today.
CBS Sports returns at 7:00 with games slated to run until midnight but CBS 2 News did not start until 12:14 last night. And CBS 2's 6:00 p.m. Saturday and 6:30 p.m. Sunday newscasts will be preempted this weekend. Go to wcbstv.com/ncaa for updated game schedule information.
Expect more of the same next week beginning Thursday.
