Fox O&O will premiere 35-minute The Ten on Monday, April 9.
Fox O&O WFLD is debuting a new late-night news broadcast, The Ten, on Monday, April 9. The station says the program “will focus on Chicago’s most important news stories in a fast-paced, concise format designed for today’s news viewer.” It will air Monday-Friday from 10 to 10:35 p.m.
Some of the new broadcast’s features include “The 10 Day at 10:10 on the Ten,” a 10-day weather forecast that “identifies temperature trends and precipitation events using meteorological models and long range outlooks, combined with the expertise of a real human forecaster.” Other segments will include a local version of “Around the World in 80 Seconds” and “Four Things You Need to Know,” described as “carefully selected news that you can use for the day ahead.”
The Ten will feature co-anchors David Novarro and Lauren Cohn; chief meteorologist Amy Freeze; and sportscasters Corey McPherrin, Jill Carlson and Tom Waddle. Additional reporting will be supplied by a team that includes Robin Robinson, Mark Suppelsa, Darian Trotter, Dane Placko and Lilia Chacon. Geoff Dankert is the program’s executive producer.
The Ten is designed to go hand-in-hand with the recently re-designed WFLD Web site, www.MyFoxChicago.com, and will include exclusive content, streaming video and viewer polls.
