Another month, another ratings win for KXAN.

Austin’s NBC affiliate continues to have the most-watched newscasts in most time slots, according to July figures from Nielsen.

KXAN is ranked No. 1 at 5 a.m., 6 a.m., 5 p.m., 6 p.m. and 10 p.m.

The station’s 6 p.m. broadcast remains the city’s top-rated newscast, regardless of time period, drawing more viewers than its competitors combined.

ABC affiliate KVUE took the top spot at 4:30 a.m. and middays.

In primetime, NBC was the network to beat, followed by ABC, CBS, Fox, The CW and MyNetworkTV.
