Fox Stations Expand Newscasts in Several Markets, Including LA, Atlanta and Philly

fox logoFox Television Stations is adding newscasts in several major markets this year. Newly-announced expansions are at KTTV in Los Angeles, WAGA in Atlanta, KMSP in Minneapolis, WJZY in Charlotte, WTXF in Philadelphia, KTBC in Austin and WHBQ in Memphis (which Fox will give up control of later this year).

Fox had previously announced additional newscasts at WTTG in Washington and KSAZ in Phoenix.

“Uninformed critics say big companies are cutting local news,” Fox Television Stations CEO Jack Abernethy said in a statement. “However, the opposite is true at FOX. We are expanding in a big way.”

A full list of the planned expansions is after the jump.
