WPIX Will Add a 5 p.m. Newscast To Fall Lineup

WPIX will add an extra hour of news to their programming lineup this fall, according to our sister site, FishbowlNY. The new broadcast will air at 5 p.m., in a timeslot currently filled by a rerun of “Friends.”

WPIX’s planned newscast will join a competitive 5 p.m. timeslot, pitting the CW affiliate against existing broadcasts on WCBS, WNYW and WABC. WNBC, the New York City NBC O&O, is also launching a 5 p.m. broadcast in September.

No anchor has been named for the WPIX broadcast, which will run for an hour and target female viewers.
