WRGX has added a second option for local news at 4:00 p.m. in Dothan.

WRGX-LD 23 / Dothan, AL (“WRGX”)

FIRST ON THE BLOG: WRGX 23 was created in 2013 and shares local news from WTVY 4, but with no simulcasts from WRGX 23, but it has some newscasts of it’s own.

It debuted it’s own 5:30 p.m. newscast when the channel was launched last year, but now there’s a new newscast on-the-air on WRGX 23. On Monday October 20th, 2014, the station added a half-hour 4:00 p.m. newscast called WRGX First News at 4:00. The NEW half-hour newscast is anchored by Kevin Presley and Katrice Nolan (who also anchors the WTVY Primetime News at 9:00 on Dothan’s CW – WTVY-DT 4.3 / The CW). Even though this newscast also competes with WDFX 34’s FOX 34 News, First at 4:00, that newscast focuses more on the Montgomery area because WDFX 34 simulcasts newscasts from WSFA 12 in Montgomery, including it’s morning newscast from 4:30-7:00 a.m., 4:00-5:00 and 9:00-9:30 p.m. (WSFA 12.2 / Bounce TV) The WRGX 23, 4:00 p.m. newscast is Dothan-based, as it’s produced from the studios of WTVY 4, WRGX 23’s sister station, which makes this new newscast, the ONLY Dothan-based newscast at 4:00 p.m.

We’ll see how this one goes.
