News Raw goes sports

KNBC's News Raw channel, which is branded as Digital 4.4, announced today that as of Monday, pre-Olympic programming from Universal Sports would take over many of the channel's hours. News Raw programming will cut back to noon to 5 pm. Sounds like more will be available online, but I can't be sure because the on-air announcement was interrupted by a commercial. The notice came down in a memo from channel 4 News Director Bob Long read by a producer.
