Expanding The News in Charlotte


WSOC in Charlotte is expanding their newscast, but it's on a different channel.

Channel 9 Eyewitness News at 10 pm on WAXN TV64 (which is a very long name for a newscast) will be expanding its weeknight prime time late newscasts to a full hour, debuting Monday, Dec. 2.

“We’re committed to delivering valuable local news and weather coverage, and by expanding the newscast to one hour, we’re giving viewers more relevant content to consume,” says Joe Pomilla, VP and general manager of WSOC/WAXN TV.   

There will be no changes to the anchor line-up, said WSOC/WAXN News Director Julie Szulczewski.  

“Channel 9’s Natalie Pasquarella will continue to anchor the newscast each weeknight at 10 p.m. on WAXN-TV64 along with Channel 9 Chief Meteorologist Steve Udelson,” Szulczewski said.
