WGHP To Launch 11 P.M. Newscast
Tribune’s Fox affiliate WGHP Greensboro, N.C. (DMA 48), will premiere Fox8 News at 11 pm on May 1.
Building upon the success of its market-leading 10.5 hours of locally produced news each day, WGHP is adding another 30 minutes of local news coverage, upping its daily total to 11 hours of content every weekday.
“As the most watched local news station in the Triad, moving into the 11 o’clock hour is a natural extension. The Fox8 News at 11 pm will be a new and meaningful choice for local news that will provide viewers and users with the depth and quality that they have come to expect from WGHP,” said Jim Himes, the station’s president and general manager.
WGHP’s Michael Hennessey will anchor the new newscast, joined by Chief Meteorologist Van Denton.
“More people watch our newscasts than anyone else’s in the Triad for a reason. We’re excited to give them another reason by delivering our community something new and exciting at 11pm. The Fox8 News at 11pm will offer viewers a different look at the day and what to expect the next morning,” said Kevin Daniels, WGHP news director.
