    Expanding the news from 3 to 5 hours a day doesn't seem to be a reason to change the name of the network. I'd expect to see a service called NewsNation to provide much more news than that.

    It is a start. CNN's Headline News has five hours per day (morning only).

    The plan is to slowly ween off the rerun fest over about a year or so. Nexstar wants to use downtime from its talent at its zillions of local stations to produce content. Reporters have been told to look for a "national angle" in local stories.
