Starting Monday, February 4, Lancaster, PA, NBC affiliate WGAL will begin airing a 10 p.m. newscast on its subchannel 8.2.
The newscast will feature anchors Ron Martin, Janelle Stelson and meteorologist Doug Allen weekdays. The weekends will be anchored by Jim Sinkovitz and meteorologist Matthew Moore.
Lancaster Online spoke with John Baldwin from WGAL who said the 10 p.m. news will not be a duplicate of the main channel’s 11 p.m.
Baldwin didn’t say this, but the 10 p.m. newscast will compete directly with WPMT-TV Fox 43’s News at 10, which appears to be a return shot in response to other networks expanding their news coverage.
The 10 p.m. show can also be seen on Comcast channel 248, Blue Ridge cable channel 136, Kuhn Communications channel 68 and channel 460 on Verizon FiOS.[TVNewsCheck]
