WALA-WFNA, the Fox and CW affiliates in Mobile, are expanding the weekday morning newscast by an hour beginning January 27.
“Local content is so important to Gulf Coast viewers. We are so excited to be able to respond to our viewers and customers with even more news programming focused on this region,” WALA-WFNA president and general manager Gary Yoder said in a statement.
The current morning newscast runs from 4:30 to 8 a.m., followed by “Studio 10,” a lifestyle and entertainment program. In the new programming lineup, the morning newscast will run from 4:30 to 9 a.m. “Studio 10″ will air at 9 a.m. on WALA, replacing “Bethenny,” which will move to WFNA.
The WALA-WFNA morning newscast will continue to be anchored by Sarah Wall and Eric Reynolds along with meteorologist Michael White.
