WWMT Adds Weekend Morning Newscasts

Grand Rapids CBS affiliate WWMT is launching weekend morning newscasts later this month.

The newscasts will air Saturdays from 6 to 8 a.m. and Sundays from 7 to 9 a.m. beginning January 19. Jessica Harthorn (left),a veteran WWMT reporter, will anchor. She will be joined by meteorologist Cyndi Kahlbaum (right).

“These weekend morning newscasts will deliver breaking news and severe weather coverage while also reflecting more of a ‘Face the Nation’ feel on the local level,” VP-GM Jim Lutton said in a statement. “We will incorporate major live interviews, debate the hot issues and report live on the scene of developing stories with a dedicated reporter.”
