FIRST ON THE BLOG: Deck the halls with lots of news, Fa la la la la la la la la. Deck the halls with more news from WRAL, Ba la la la la la la la la. More news on WRAZ, fa la la la la la la la la. WRAL News on WRAZ, fa la la la la la la la la. Yes, I know, it didn’t make sense, but I’m in the Christmas spirit.

Anyways, WRAL 5 is set to add an hour-long 4:00 p.m. newscast on WRAZ 50, starting January 12th. Thanks to a tipster through my personal twitter account, WRAL News at 4:00 on FOX 50, will be anchored by Gerald Owens (who also does 5:30, 10:00 and 11:00 p.m.), Jackie Hyland (who also does 5:30 and 10:00 p.m.) with WRAL Weather by AMS-CBM/Sealed Meteorologist Mike Maze (who also does the weather at 5:30 and 10:00 p.m.)

The new newscast will be seen on WRAZ 50, due to WRAL 5 airing The Young and The Restless at 4:00 p.m. (which airs at 4:00 p.m. due to WRAL 5’s hour-long noon newscast, disrupting TYTR’s normal time of 12:30 p.m.) This displaces The Dr. Oz Show, which will move to 2:00 p.m. This newscast will compete with WTVD 11’s ABC 11 Eyewitness News at 4:00 for local news in that timeslot in the market.

I hope you enjoy more of WRAL News on WRAZ 50 in the new year!
