40/29 News To Expand Sunrise Newscast
Source: KHBS-KHOG Press Release Beginning Monday, 40/29 News Sunrise will be expanding to two hours, with a new start time of 5 a.m.
This makes 40/29 News the area’s only station providing local news and weather coverage at 5 a.m.
“This expansion has been in the works for some time.” According to News Director Mike Courington, “We realize that people are getting up earlier and looking for local news and weather.”
40/29 News Sunrise is anchored by Jennifer Haile, a graduate of the University of Arkansas. She is joined weekday mornings by AMS Certified Meteorologist Justin Povick. The duo is the most experienced morning news team in the area.
“We look forward to the expanded format.” Says Jennifer, “it allows us to provide viewers with the information they need at their convenience.”
