Hartford’s WTIC Expands Morning Newscast

WTIC, the Fox-affiliate in Hartford, is revamping its morning news hours beginning next Monday.

Currently, the station’s morning show airs from 4:30 a.m. to 9 a.m., leading in to syndicated programming from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. At 11 a.m., WTIC airs a half-hour newscast. Beginning next week, the station will scrap the 11 a.m. newscast and tack an extra hour to the morning show — making the expanded hours 4:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.

Logan Byrnes will continue to anchor the broadcast with meteorologist Joe Furey; Erika Arias, who began as morning co-anchor this week, will join them from 5 a.m. to 10 a.m. Meteorologist Rachel Frank, who is normally seen in the evenings on WTIC, will also be featured while Rachel Lutzker is on maternity leave. Geoff Fox will take over Frank’s evening duties in the interim.

On September 18, Alison Morris — currently weekend evening anchor at the Hartford-New Haven Fox affiliate — will replace Erika Arias on the station’s 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday broadcasts. Morris will co-anchor with Brent Hardin, the current 10 p.m. anchor, for both broadcasts.

Arias, meanwhile, will be setting her alarm a little bit earlier: on September 19, she will replace French as Logan Byrnes‘ co-anchor on the morning show, from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. Read more
