Cordillera Communications’s NBC affiliate WLEX Lexington, Ky., is doing away with its 4 p.m. newscast and replacing it with the syndicated Canadian lifestyle series Cityline.
Telemundo’s Chicago outlet will debut the new broadcast on Sept. 26 with Anabel Monge and Alfonso Gutierrez as co-anchors.
With the Sept. 12 introduction of the hour-long The Four, the Raycom Fox affiliate in Birmingham, Ala., will be producing nearly 60 of local news a week.
Monday marks the start of a 4 p.m. weekday newscast on NBC-owned WMAQ Chicago, increasing NBC 5’s output to 41 hours of local news each week. Marion Brooks will anchor the additional half-hour, with co-anchor duties shared by Rob Stafford and Dick Johnson (similar to the lineup for the 4:30 p.m. newscast).
