KXAN’s winning streak continued in September, finishing first in most head-to-head news competitions.

The city’s NBC affiliate was No. 1 at 5 a.m., 6 a.m., 5 p.m., 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. last month.

ABC affiliate KVUE was the top-ranked station at 4:30 a.m. and middays.

NBC’s “Today” was the first-place network morning show and “NBC Nightly News” is the nighttime network newscast to beat.

In primetime, NBC is the frontrunner, followed by CBS, then ABC, Fox, The CW and MyNetworkTV.
