WFOR, the CBS O&O in Miami, is launching weekend morning newscasts in July.

Marybel Rodriguez (pictured) will anchor both hour-long newscasts, which will air on Saturdays at 6 a.m. and on Sundays at 8 a.m. She will be joined by meteorologist Craig Setzer.

“The expansion of our news coverage reflects not only our commitment to covering South Florida, but also the fact that this area is one of the most dynamic news markets in the nation,” WFOR news director Liz Roldan said in a statement. “Taken in tandem with our Saturday and Sunday evening newscasts, this move will allow us to provide seamless and consistent coverage every day of the week, including weekends.”
