LIN’s Alabama Fox affiliate is adding a half-hour and starting its Fox10 Morning News at 4:30 starting Aug. 27.
LIN Television’s Fox affiliate WALA Mobile, Ala. (DMA 60), announced the debut of a new 4:30 a.m. newscast. The half-hour extension of its morning news program will begin Monday, Aug. 27.
“This is such a natural extension of our existing morning news,” said WALA-WFNA VP-GM Gary Yoder. “Our viewers’ lives are busy and their mornings are busy. Starting our news day a half-hour earlier is a way to ensure they get the news, weather and traffic information they need … when they need it.”
The current Fox10 Morning News is anchored by Sarah Wall and Eric Reynolds with weather provided by meteorologist Michael White. The new addition will feature a single anchor rotation between Wall and Reynolds as well as weathercasts by White.
Fox10 Morning News will air weekdays from 4:30 until 8 a.m and will continue to be followed by WALA’s lifestyle and entertainment show, Studio 10.
