KAKE Adds Weekend, Afternoon Newscasts

Wichita ABC affiliate KAKE has added two new newscasts, one on Sunday mornings and one at 4 p.m. on weekdays, to its lineup.

The Sunday morning newscast, which debuted yesterday, is anchored by Annette Lawless with meteorologist Blake Smith. The 4 p.m. newscast, anchored by Larry Hatteberg and Deb Farris, will debut this afternoon.

“The addition of these two local programs further demonstrates our commitment to local news,” KAKE general manager Dan Wall said in a statement.

The station is currently searching for a replacement for Jeff Herndon, who signed off from the anchor desk last week. Herndon is headed to WFLD in Chicago, where he will co-anchor the evening newscasts.
