WFTC to Debut Locally Produced Pop Culture and Entertainment Show

WFTC, Fox’s MyNetworkTV affiliate in Minneapolis-St. Paul, is launching a locally produced entertainment and pop culture show next month. “On The Fly” will air weeknights at 11 p.m. and will re-air at 8 a.m. the following morning.

The show will be hosted by former Minneapolis radio personality Tony Fly (pictured), former radio producer Dan Edwards and KMSP-WFTC traffic reporter Kelsey Soby. The first show is slated for July 22.

“‘On The Fly’ showcases the humor and spontaneity of a radio talk show with the visual impact of television. The ensemble of Tony, Kelsey, and Dan will provide unique commentary on the big talkers of the day,” KMSP-WFTC vice president and general manager Carol Rueppel said in a statement.

In Dayton, WDTN Will Launch 4:30 a.m. Newscast

WDTN, the NBC-affiliate in Dayton, will launch an expanded newscast with a 4:30 a.m. start time on Monday.

“The weather is changing and there’s no better time to give our viewers an even-earlier look at how they should plan their day,” WDTN general manager Lisa Barhorst said in a statement. “We all live busy lives and people are starting their days even earlier.”

WDTN will keep the same anchor team — Dan Edwards and Pam Elliot, with meteorologist Jamie Jarosik — in place for the extra half-hour.

The station will be the third in the market, after CBS-affiliate WHIO and ABC-affiliate WKEF, to start the morning newscast at 4:30 a.m.
