WPLG is going back to morning news at 9:00 a.m. for the first time in 5 years.

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

FIRST ON THE BLOG: One station in my home market of South Florida is about to return to a familiar timeslot in the morning for the first time in 5 years.

Starting Monday September 12th, WPLG 10 will soon add an hour-long morning newscast at 9:00am with the Local 10 Morning News at 9:00am. They will soon compete against WSVN 7 (FOX)’s 9:00am hour of 7 News – Today in Florida for local morning news in that timeslot in the market.

The newscast will be anchored by Eric Yutzy and Jacey Birch with Local 10 – The Weather Authority from AMS/Sealed and NWA/Membered Meteorologist Julie Durda and Traffic from Constance Jones, but possibly soon-to-be-replaced by Jenise Fernandez as Constance will soon leave WPLG 10 for a morning anchor job at WAGA 5 (FOX) in Atlanta.

This is the first time in 5 years that WPLG 10 will broadcast in this timeslot as they have previously done so before but for like a year or two until it was replaced in 2011 by LIVE with Kelly (named LIVE with Kelly and Michael at the time).

So WPLG 10 is bringing back this morning newscast and I know they’re trying to steal viewership from my favorite station, WSVN 7. We’ll see how this one goes.

  1. I wonder if the 9:00am newscast on WPLG will be an on again off again newscast? It would not surprise me if WPLG fills their 9:00am time slot in a few years with syndicated programming.
