WRAL (Raleigh) says they will start producing a 4PM newscast on sister station WRAZ.
The new broadcast will be anchored by veteran news team Gerald Owens, Jackie Hyland and meteorologist Mike Maze.
WRAL News Director Rick Gall says: “The 4 p.m. newscast gives us an opportunity to get started earlier and be on the air when a significant amount of news is breaking. Viewers will be able to see the top local, state, and national stories all in one place. And we’ll make sure they’re up to speed on what’s trending in social media. We’ll cover a lot of ground, tapping the vast experience, talent, and depth of a terrific newsroom staff.”
The new newscast hits the air next week.
