WXIN 59 / Indianapolis (“FOX 59”)

It’s obvious that for months, it has been reported out there that WXIN 59 will expand it’s news broadcasts to include a half-hour at 11:00 p.m. and half-hour at 7:00 p.m. While the 11:00 p.m. newscast already debuted, nobody else knows when the 7:00 p.m. newscast will make it’s debut, but I do know now and since nobody else has this information, it’s FIRST ON THE BLOG

FIRST ON THE BLOG: WXIN 59 will launch FOX 59 News at 7:00 on Monday September 22nd. This coincides with the launch of Celebrity Name Game from Craig Ferguson at 7:30 p.m. The new newscast will be anchored by Bob Donaldson, Fanchon Stinger, FOX 59 Weather Authority Chief Meteorologist Brian Wilkes and Sports with sports director, Chris Hagan. The new newscast will compete with WRTV 6’s RTV 6 News at 7:00 (which gave itself a 7-year head start in that timeslot, in which the newscast celebrated 7 years on 9/10/14 after launching on 9/10/07) for news there. This is how the new lineup will look like for WXIN 59, starting Monday September 22nd, from 4:00 p.m.-12:00 a.m.:
