WALB will soon deliver Southwest Georgia’s first and earliest newscast at 4:00 p.m.

WALB 10 / Albany, GA (“WALB NBC”)

FIRST ON THE BLOG: If you’re looking for an earlier option for local news in Southwest Georgia and 5:00pm is not an option for you, then maybe 4:00pm can be. Soon, one local station in the area will deliver that.

Starting next Tuesday September 6th (not Monday Sept. 5th due to Labor Day and NBC Sports Golf coverage), WALB 10 will introduce a half-hour 4:00pm newscast with WALB News 10 – First at 4:00. It will be the first and ONLY local newscast on at 4:00pm in the market and it already holds the area’s ONLY 5:00 and 5:30pm newscasts as well.

It will be a half-hour newscast so it will use Inside Edition to fill the 4:30pm timeslot before the station returns to local news at 5:00, 5:30 and 6:00pm. This will be a traditional newscast filled with regular news and weather coverage. Nothing out of the ordinary here. No word yet as to who will anchor the newscast yet but I believe that WALB 24/7 Weather AMS/Sealed Chief Meteorologist Yolanda Amadeo will handle the weather duties for the new broadcast.

So yes, WALB 10 is adding another new local newscast from an already dominant station that it is. This will just further enhance it so congrats, WALB 10! Barely any competition means more local news to broadcast for yourselves and for viewers to purely enjoy your work.

  1. No option for news at 7:00am or 8:00am morning news in the Albany, GA market since WFXL canned its news operation. I wonder though if WALB will ever partner with WFXL and produce morning and 10:00pm news for WFXL or if WFXL will go off the air and the FOX station in Albany, GA will move to a subdigital channel on WALB in the future similar to what the FOX station did in South Bend when their news operation was canned and moved to WSBT and WSBT now producing news for the FOX station in South Bend.
