Five days a week on a local TV station news can be viewed from 6 pm to 7 pm.
However on weekends, on the same local channel the same news show can be viewed from 6 pm to 6:30 pm.
Not only that sites like ZDNet.com post less news articles.
So why is there less news on the weekend vs the weekdays?
Note I'm excluding the "news" channels which show news pretty much 24 hours a day.

I think it is a combination of a few things.
1) Less people watch the news on weekends.
2) The news team wants less work on the weekends.
1+2) "Discretionary news" can be broadcast during the week. This is news that isn't urgent.
There's a free paper in New York City. They often run "discretionary news" on Mondays (or the day after a holiday.) For example, "summer events" or "the safety records of taxi drivers." It isn't that these aren't interesting. It's that they can be prepared plenty in advance.
