WOLF, the Sinclair-owned Fox affiliate in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Pa., is producing its own newscast for the first time since 1991.
The station, which most recently has been airing news produced by WBRE, the market’s Nexstar-owned NBC affiliate, on Jan. 1 launched a one-hour 10 p.m. newscast, which will air seven days a week, according to the station.
WOLF hired an entire news crew – anchors, meteorologists, photographers, multimedia journalists and managers – to produce the show.
“This expansion is an important step in the implementation of FOX56’s strategic vision to deliver our audience a one-hour Fox branded news that fits their lifestyle,” said general manager Jon Cadman.
The newscast, called Fox56 News First at Ten, will have a heavy focus on weather lead by meteorologist Mike Linden.
