WISH in Indianapolis has announced that it is expanding its morning newscast by a half-hour.
The station says it will start the morning news at 4am and go till 9am, perviosuly the show started at 4:30am.
The Indianapolis Business Journal says that the move will mark the second time WISH has expanded its local news coverage this year.
Beginning Jan. 1, the station expanded daily newscasts by four hours a day, including the addition of two hours of morning news.
The extra news has been used to fill a programming void after WISH lost its 58-year-old affiliation with CBS-TV at the beginning of the year.
The latest expansion comes under the direction of Elbert Tucker, who was hired by WISH in April to replace outgoing news director Steve Bray.
