Milwaukee Station WDJT Launches Digital Newscast for Phone App

By Kevin Eck 

Milwaukee’s CBS affiliate WDJT is launching a digital newscast today.

The Weigel owned station said the newscast, which they’re calling a Quickcast, will be anchored by Jessob Reisbeck and is “aimed at giving you the news of the day in a quick, easily consumable format that pops up right as you’re scrolling through your social feeds or inbox.”

The newscast will pop up as a push notification on your phone. To watch the Quickcast, you’ll need to download the CBS 58 News App from Google Play or the App Store. You can also watch it on the WDJT website weeknights at 5:58 p.m.


“This is a great way to serve viewers with a newscast that’s ready when they are—and gives them just what they need,” said news director Jessie Garcia. “The Quickcast will look and feel different from a normal newscast, and reporters and sports anchors will be occasionally joining Jessob for an inside look at their stories.”
