Cd. Juarez and its suburb, El Paso.

Also Chattanooga -- I think their two metro counties are in different time zones.

It used to be Chicagoland when INDIANA didn't observe daylight savings time.

I believe that the Columbus GA metro is in 2 time zones, because the county in AL in that metro is in the Central zone. All of GA is in the Eastern zone. Time Zone

There are not many metros that have two different time zones. In most cases, exceptions are made for metros that would seemingly cross, just to keep everything moving at the same time.

I am interested in how the Northern panhandle of Idaho is Pacific, but the rest of Idaho is Mountain. If you look at the map, it stands out. My guess is the northern panhandle gets most of their media from Spokane, WA, so they maintain the Pacific zone. Likewise, far eastern Oregon gets most of their media from Boise, ID, thus the mountain zone does include parts of a far western state, Oregon. Another example of how media determines, is far Western Kansas, that observes Mountain time. Most of their media is from Denver.

Actually, most of the populated area of Russell County, Alabama, where Phenix City lies, right across from the Chattahoochee River, observes Eastern Time with Columbus and Georgia.

I'm curious...when did that change? Because I know that Illinois/Indiana border outside of Gary forms the division in time zones in the winter.

Chicagoland has always been one time zone. Indiana didn't do daylight savings except for the northwest counties that had ties to Chicago. They've always stayed on "Chicago time".

Interesting fact; As late as the early 1960's an irregular portion of western Utah was Pacific and the eastern side of the state Mountain. The line went right through Metro Salt Lake (extreme west, Tooele, and unincorporated areas PT and the eastern incorporated areas MT). The radio/TV stations used to announce the time, such as "noon pacific, 1pm mountain time". As the city grew and it became cumbersome, the entire state of Utah was placed in the Mountain Time Zone. My Father was in broadcasting at the time, probably the only reason I remember

It's not much of a metro area, but Pierre, SD is in Central Time and Fort Pierre, SD is in Mountain Time.
