Philadelphia’s WPVI will soon begin producing the 10pm newscast for Tribune owned WPHL 17. WPHL, the MyNetworkTV affiliate, is currently in an agreement with NBC-owned station WCAU to produce their 10 pm news.
Adam Joseph, meteorologist for the ABC O&O, first posted about the move on his Facebook page. “BIG NEWS!!!!! Action News will begin a 10pm newscast on PHL17 September 15th,” wrote Joseph. “Your 4pm team will anchor the 10pm newscast along with yours truly giving the forecast.”
WPVI President and General Manager, Bernie Prazenica, in a press release said, “We are thrilled to bring Action News to the prime time audience and we’re delighted to be on a respected station like PHL17.”
Joseph, along with anchors Brian Taff and Shirleen Allicot and sportscaster Ducis Rodgers will debut Action News at 10 on PHL17 on September 15.
