WVUE-TV was the first to launch their newscast in HD, followed by WGNO several years later. TV stations that switch to HD newscast to drum up ratings as FOX8 is in second place and ABC26 is in last place. Even first and second place WAFB and WBRZ in Baton Rouge produce HD newscast as well. So when will first place WWL-DT and often-debated second place WDSU-DT flip the switch to HD newscasts?
WWL-DT has dropped a subtle hint that HD news maybe on the horizon.
