wlny-logo2WLNY, the CBS-owned independent station serving the New York City market, is launching a weekend edition of its 9 p.m. newscast. Beginning July 12, the hourlong newscast will be anchored by Cindy Hsu with meteorologist Elise Finch and sports anchor Steve Overmyer.

“WLNY’s 9 p.m. newscast addresses viewers’ needs to have their local news at an earlier time in the evening and the newly expanded broadcast will now allow audiences to do that on the weekend as well,” David Friend, the senior vice president of news for CBS Television Stations and the news director for WCBS-WLNY, said in a statement.

Hsu currently anchors the weekend evening newscasts on sister station WCBS, where she has worked since 1993.
