Oklahoman Published: April 13, 2001

NewsNow 53 no longer is the only outlet for repeat newscasts in Oklahoma City.

Pax affiliate KOPX-62 has started airing replays of two KFOR-4 newcasts. KOPX replays the 6 to 7 a.m. newscast from 7 to 8 a.m. and the 10 p.m. newscast at 10:30 p.m.

KFOR, the NBC affiliate, entered into a joint sales agreement with KOPX in October. NBC has a one-third ownership of Pax.

NewsNow 53 on Cox cable continuously airs newscasts from KWTV NEWS9.
