The Tribune Fox affiliate will debut a new hour broadcast at 4 p.m. and a half-hour at 4 a.m., both on Sept. 21.
Tribune Fox affiliate WXIN Indianapolis (DMA 25) is expanding its local news programming, providing more local news than any other station in Indianapolis.
It will add an hour of news every weekday at 4 p.m. and a half-hour at 4:30 a.m.
The station expects to launch both newscasts on Sept. 21.
The expansion will also add several new on-air and off-air positions to the station’s staff.
“This expansion continues our commitment to be the leader in news and information in Indianapolis” said Vice President and General Manager Jerry Martin.
The new 4 p.m. newscast, Fox 59 News: First at Four, will be anchored by Bob Donaldson, Cheryl Parker and Chief Meteorologist Brian Wilkes, a team that’s been together at WXIN since 1996.
