WPLG is expanding its weekend morning newscast to start even earlier.

WPLG 10 / Miami – Ft. Lauderdale (“Local 10”)

If you’re looking for earlier weekend morning news in Miami, then look no further. In my home market, WPLG 10 will be glad to offer the service for South Floridians…

Starting this Saturday, February 13th, WPLG 10 is expanding its weekend morning newscast to start by a half-hour earlier to 5:00am. Local 10 Morning News will now run for 3 hours on weekends from 5:00-8:00am and then another 90 minutes from 9:00-10:30am with Good Morning America sandwiched in between from 8:00-9:00am.

In terms of competition, WPLG 10 will become the ONLY station in Miami to start its weekend morning news at 5:00am on both Saturdays and Sundays, as well as offering the ONLY weekend morning newscast for an hour at 5:00am on Saturdays and for 2 hours on Sundays from 5:00-7:00am.

The newscast is anchored by two WPLG 10 veterans, Neki Mohan and Todd Tongen with The Weather Authority from Meteorologist Jennifer Correa.

If you’re curious about WPLG’s new weekend morning schedule, here it is since I live in the Miami market, myself:
