Co-owned Tribune stations will offer 9 p.m. newscast.
Starting May 1, Tribune-owned WB affiliate WNOL New Orleans will air co-owned WGNO’s ABC26 News at 9 every weeknight.
The announcement was made by Larry Delia, Tribune Television New Orleans vice president and general manager. ABC26 News at 9 will be produced by ABC26 News and will be anchored by ABC26 News Anchor Michael Hill.
“We are very excited to offer a new choice at 9 for news viewers with our award-winning ABC26 News team,” said Delia. “Now New Orleans can have the convenience of an early newscast in just 30 minutes at 9 p.m. on our sister station WB38.”
