Channel 7 tries a prerecorded sports broadcast at 11 p.m.

Some astute TV viewers noticed that WKBW-TV quietly may have been involved in a rarity in TV news last Thursday.

Channel 7 sports reporter and anchor Matt Bove prerecorded the 11 p.m. sportscast in the newscast the night of a Buffalo Sabres game that he covered.

One veteran broadcaster who noticed it said it was a first for him. I’m also not aware of that happening too often in this market, if at all. It certainly isn’t ideal. However, prerecorded sports reports air often on morning news programs.
