WMTW To Add News at 5:00 p.m.

On September 9, Portland, ME, ABC affiliate WMTW will begin airing an hour-long newscast at 5:00 p.m.

“We’re thrilled that WMTW is growing each year and across so much of our programming and platforms.” said WMTW general manager Dave Abel. “By strengthening our product we will reward our longtime watchers with more local weather and news while attracting a growing audience seeking something new and fresh.”

The 5:00 p.m. show will be anchored by Tracy Sabol and meteorologist Roger Griswold. Abel told the Portland Press Herald he will soon announce the addition of a male co-anchor for both the 5:00 and 6:00 p.m. newscasts.

“Dr. Phil” will move from 5:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. to take the place of the canceled “Ricki Lake Show.”
