Less shuteye for morning news people

Eyewitness News and Action News are moving the start of its morning report by a half-hour -- to 4:30 a.m. -- effective Labor Day.

This will swing CBS3 and 6ABC in line with Fox29, which moved to a 4:30 a.m. starting last spring.

CBS3 credits itself with launching the city's first early morning newscast at 6:30 a.m. in February 1981.

NBC 10 would not say if it plans to move up its newscast.
