Expanding News in Chattanooga

A Sinclair station is adding more time to their morning newscast.

WTVC (Chattanooga) announced this morning that they will expand their morning news coverage with the addition of GMC FOX Edition.

The new show will air weekday mornings from 7 a.m. - 9 a.m. on FOX Chattanooga - part of Sinclair Broadcast Group, Chattanooga - beginning Monday, April 4th.

"Extending the Good Morning Chattanooga brand to FOX Chattanooga with GMC FOX Edition gives viewers a local news option in the 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. hours," said General Manager Mike Costa. "We know many viewers want and need local news, traffic and weather after the 7 a.m. hour when the network shows originate from New York City. Now they can continue to depend on the team of Sarah Jennings, Greg Funderburg, Brian Smith, Drew Bollea and Beth Neuhoff to keep them better informed every day on Fox Chattanooga with GMC FOX Edition."

"GMC FOX Edition will feature much of the same great news, weather and traffic coverage that viewers want," said News Director Tom Henderson. "But the show will have a more relaxed, laid back feel - much like our weekend edition. There will be more lifestyle and human interest stories, as well as interviews with local news makers."
