Believe it or not, there’s actually a newscast debuting this week. I meant to do this yesterday, but felt kinda too lazy. Nonetheless, I’m here to post this and it comes from Roanoke and after all this time… WFXR will finally debut its in-house local news department.

WFXR in Roanoke. After all this time, WFXR 27 will finally debut its in-house local news department that Nexstar has been investing on. WFXR 27 will end its news-sharing agreement with WSLS 10 (NBC) on Wednesday September 30th, 2015, after the 10:00 p.m. broadcast and after almost 20 years together. From its current product, the weeknight 10:00 p.m. news will remain the same while the morning newscast expands from two to four hours. Both programs will be in HD and renamed as the news operation becomes WFXR News.
Enjoy your Thursday, Roanoke! Your in for a good treat. For everybody else, have a good week.
