NCAA Basketball Pre-empts Programming

Posted: Updated:

KYTX- Some CBS programs will not be shown this Thursday and Friday due to the network's coverage of the March Madness basketball games.

The athletic event coverage begins at 11 a.m.

"It's important for loyal viewers to know that they're not missing their programs," said John Gaston, KYTX CBS 19 General Manager. "Shows like The Young and the Restless will pause in their story line and not be shown anywhere."

CBS 19's news coverage will be slightly different these two days. The 6 p.m. newscast will not air, and the 10 p.m. newscast will air after the late game, about 11 p.m.

"This is an exciting time for sports fans and east Texans, with Stephen F. Austin at the dance," Gaston said. "We hope you will enjoy this break in the routine." 

Regular CBS programming will resume Monday.
