Fox News Comes to Waco

KWKT Waco unveils its first news program tonight, reports the Waco Tribune. Fox News Central Texas promises to be a "peppier, punchier" program, writes Carl Hoover, that mixes in no small amount of pop culture. 

"I’m a hardcore traditionalist when it comes to television news, but we deal in pop culture these days," said news director Neal Barton. 

The program airs at 9:30 tonight, after the State of the Union address, then moves to 9 nightly. 

Michael Malone, senior content producer at B+C/Multichannel News, covers network programming, including entertainment, news and sports on broadcast, cable and streaming; and local broadcast television. He hosts the podcasts Busted Pilot, about what’s new in television, and Series Business, a chat with the creator of a new program, and writes the column “The Watchman.” He joined B+C in 2005. His journalism has also appeared in The New York Times, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Playboy and New York magazine.
