WDAY Takes Over WDAZ 5 p.m. Newscast

wday_croppedFargo’s WDAY took over the production this week of the 5 p.m. newscast on sister station WDAZ, the ABC affiliate in Grand Forks, the Grand Forks Herald reports:

WDAZ and WDAY began collaborative weekend newscasts in 2011, which gave WDAZ more time and resources to cover more local news on weeknights at 10 and more regional news on the weekends, the statement said. “We want to give North Dakota and Minnesota viewers the best we have to offer,” WDAZ and WDAY General Manager Mari Ossenfort said in the release. “By combining our teams, we’ll be able to make it happen.”

Anchor Terry Dullum was sad to see the broadcast go, as were his Facebook friends and followers. “We’ve focused on local, regional and community news and we’ve had a lot of fun along the way as well,” Dullum wrote in a Monday blog post. “We put a lot of energy into the broadcast in those seventeen years including a little bit of our heart and soul.”
