In Harrisburg, WPMT Expands Evening News

Starting January 9, WPMT will add a 6 p.m. newscast to the programming lineup, the Harrisburg Fox-affiliate announced today.

“At Fox43 News, we are all about choice,” WPMT news director Chris Holden said in a statement. “We want to give viewers the choice to get the news when it fits their schedule.”

The station currently has a 6:30 p.m. newscast anchored by Evan Forrester and Heather Warner. The pair will also anchor the 6 p.m. newscast when it debuts next year.

The new newscast will compete in the 6 p.m. hour with NBC-affiliate WGAL, CBS-affiliate WHP and ABC-affiliate WHTM, each of which broadcasts news in that timeslot.
