It appears KTVT, the CBS owned station in Dallas, will produce “CBS Weekend News” again Saturday, March 28 and Sunday, March 29, 2020, according to a Facebook post from anchor Doug Dunbar.

Dunbar anchored last weekend — while the previous weekend, March 14 and 15, were handled by Los Angeles.

The CBS Broadcast Center in New York normally handles the broadcast out of the CBSN newsroom set adjacent to Studio 57, but the network has all but shown down the facility due to coronavirus concerns.

Instead, it is relying on other ViacomCBS properties across the country to help produce content — as well as spreading out across New York City area facilities.

Dunbar, meanwhile, has set up a home TV studio, but it’s not clear if he will come into the studio to anchor “Weekend News.”

“CBS Weekend News” is the weekend equivalent of “CBS Evening News.”
