Beginning in January, Manchester’s WMUR will produce a 10 p.m. weekday newscast for the station’s digital subchannel, a Me-TV affiliate.

Plans for the newscast have been in development since 2010, according to the station. In a statement, WMUR president and general manager Jeff Bartlett said the goal is to give viewers a choice between a local newscast on the subchannel and the entertainment programming that airs at 10 p.m. on the main channel, which is the Manchester ABC-affiliate.

Anchors will be Tom Griffith and Tiffany Eddy. They will be joined by chief meteorologist Mike Haddad and sports director Jamie Staton.
