Indianapolis CW affiliate WISH is relaunching its 30 minute newscast at 11 p.m.

DuJuan McCoy, owner, president and CEO of parent company Circle City Broadcasting, said the station is always seeking new ways to engage its viewers.

“News 8 at 11 with Phil Sanchez is an original approach to local news in Indiana that will help educate and keep our audience engaged via a non-traditional delivery, with more robust and compelling content,” said McCoy.


The newly relaunched newscast will feature what the station is calling an exclusive segment called UnPHILtered.

According to WISH, UnPHILtered is a “no-holds-barred exclusive content feature that will include interviews with community newsmakers, two-sided debates on pertinent local and national topics as well as community feel-good stories.”

“I love that we at WISH-TV continue to be creative and differentiate ourselves from our competition in how we deliver news,” said Al Carl, vp and news director at WISH. “We believe our ‘News 8 at 11 with Phil Sanchez’ will have a significant impact on this community because it will be filled with unique content delivered by Phil, who Indiana viewers have grown to love and trust.”

“I’m thrilled about the opportunity to lead this show and I look forward to engaging directly with the community to bring the stories and information our viewers want. I look forward to your story request and feedback at ,” said Sanchez, who also anchors the 5, 6 and 10 p.m. newscasts.
