WHDH, the NBC affiliate in Boston, has announced the introduction of a 9 a.m. newscast to their daily programming lineup. The new broadcast will replace “Regis & Kelly,” which will move to ABC affiliate WCVB next month.
The Sunbeam-owned WHDH follows the lead of Miami’s WSVN — also owned by Sunbeam — in replacing “Regis & Kelly” with an additional hour of morning news.“The extra hour in the morning further establishes our dedication to providing more local news and information to our viewers,” said WHDH vice president and general manager Chris Wayland.
WHDH currently airs “Today in New England,” from 5 a.m. to 7 a.m., followed by NBC’s “Today” show from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. The new show will be anchored by Anne Allred and Adam Williams, with weather forecasts contributed by meteorologist Dylan Dreyer.
