WTSP Adding Sunday Morning Newscast

By Aneya Fernando 

wtsp_304Tampa CBS affiliate WTSP is ensuring that viewers get morning coverage from them seven days a week.

The station announced that it plans to launch an 8:30 a.m. show on Sundays. The newscast will be anchored by Mark Rivera and will feature appearances by meteorologist Ashley Batey and “On the Road” reporter Bobby Lewis. The program will directly precede “CBS Sunday Morning.”

WTSP general manager Elliott Wiser claims that the show will take a “more in-depth look at local stories, with less crime and more news befitting Sunday morning.”


The newscast debuts on March 1.
