WDTN, the NBC-affiliate in Dayton, is launching high-definition newscasts this weekend.

“We are extremely excited to give the viewers of 2 NEWS what they’ve been asking for,” news director Steve Diorio said in a statement. “This is a multi-million dollar investment into our news product that demonstrates our commitment to local news and weather in Dayton and the Miami Valley.”

WDTN is also unveiling a new look to coincide with the HD launch. A new set (pictured above) was designed by FX Group for the station.

The first HD newscast will be Saturday at 6 p.m.
