WJW is about to give you more “News in the Morning” by a half-hour, starting Monday.

WJW 8 / Cleveland (“FOX 8”)

FIRST ON THE BLOG: Get ready boys and girls if you live in Cleveland or in Northeast Ohio. WJW is ready to expand even earlier than the competition.

Announced through WJW 8’s Instagram page (FOX8NewsCleveland). It’s a video, so click on it to play it:

WJW 8 is about to expand their weekday morning newscast, a half-hour earlier to 4:00 a.m., starting Monday November 2nd, 2015. FOX 8 News in the Morning, consistently ranked as Cleveland and Northeast Ohio’s #1 morning newscast, is anchored by Wayne Dawson, Stefani Schaefer and Kristi Capel with Weather from AMS/Sealed Meteorologist Scott Sabol.

With this addition, WJW 8 will be home to Northeast Ohio’s earliest morning newscast at 4:00 a.m., as their competitors WKYC 3 (NBC), WEWS 5 (ABC) and WOIO 19 (CBS) will all continue to start at 4:30 a.m., due to each station carrying their own networks’ early morning newscasts: NBC News – Early TodayABC America This Morning and CBS Morning News, respectively. This also means that WJW 8 will air their weekday morning newscast for a whopping 6 hours from 4:00-10:00 a.m. The station also airs a 3-hour weekend morning newscast from 7:00-10:00 a.m.

So if you’re looking for more and earlier morning news in Northeast Ohio, then Cleveland’s Own, FOX 8 News has done the job for you. Good job thinking about the viewers and their hectic morning lifestyles, WJW 8!

  1. We’ve got a couple Top 20 markets in the eastern time zone that have yet to expand to 4AM, including Atlanta, DC, Philly, Orlando, and Miami. The wait is on to see who goes first in their respective markets.


  2. The largest TV Market in the country New York City use to have local morning news at 4:00am. For a few years WPIX-TV 11, The PIX use to have a 4:00am newscast. So count NYC TV Market as a TV Market in the Eastern Time Zone not having 4:00am morning news.
