Boston’s WFXT Launches 5 p.m. Newscast

WFXT, the Fox owned station in Boston, is launching a 5 p.m. newscast next month. The hourlong broadcast will debut on October 7.

The newscast will be anchored by WFXT’s current evening anchor team, Maria Stephanos and Mark Ockerbloom (pictured) with chief meteorologist Kevin Lemanowicz. The newscast will bring the total hours of news produced on WFXT to 52 hours a week, the most of any station in Boston.

“Dr. Oz,” which currently airs in the 5 p.m. hour, will move to 3 p.m., replacing “Anderson Live,” which was not renewed for a third season.
