Arkansas CW to Start Airing Morning News

Source: Arkansas CW Press ReleasBeginning Tuesday, September 6th viewers will be able to watch 40/29 News Sunrise on the Arkansas CW weekdays from 7:00 – 7:30 a.m. 

Using the award-winning newsgathering resources from local ABC affiliate and sister station 40/29 TV, the 7:00 a.m. newscast on The Arkansas CW will offer local viewers an option for the LIVE. LOCAL. LATE BREAKING. coverage they have come to expect from 40/29 News.  40/29 News Sunrise on the Arkansas CW will feature familiar faces, including Anchors Daniel Armbruster and Yuna Lee, plus traffic reporter Allison Wise along with weather meteorologist Laura Huckabee.   Teams of field crews from across the entire region will cover important news and weather events from Fort Smith, The River Valley and all of Northwest Arkansas.

“We’ve long been committed to localism and to serving our community on The Arkansas CW,” said KHBS/KHOG-TV President and General Manager, Shawn Oswald. “In August, 2012, we added a 9 p.m. local newscast on the station. This expansion into the 7:00 a.m. time period extends our commitment to providing local viewers our award-winning coverage at a time that is important to them.”

Why is this exciting news? Won't it just be a repeat of the actual newscasts on the real station?

How about hiring a weekend anchor and a weekend morning met instead of adding yet another show? How long until 40/29 adds a 4PM weekday newscast to match what KFSM is doing?

KFSM does not have a 4pm newscast.
