On the Heels of New Afternoon Newscast, WINK Prepares Weekend Expansion

A month after announcing that it would replace “Oprah” with a new, 4 p.m. newscast, WINK, a CBS-affiliate in southwest Florida, is set to expand its local news programming further by offering a weekend morning newscast.

The new newscast will air from 7:30 to 9:00 a.m. Saturday and Sunday.

“I think there is a demand for local news and weather on weekend mornings, just like there is during the week,” said WINK news director Russ Kilgore. “And coming on at 7:30 a.m. is a time when we think a lot of people are looking for that kind of information.”

WINK has promoted reporter Erin Maloney (right) to the weekend anchor desk. She will work the new newscast, which is scheduled to debut on June 11th, alongside meteorologist Katie Walls, who recently joined WINK from WSIL in southern Illinois.
