WXIX announced today that it will expand its morning news coverage to begin at 4 a.m., the earliest live broadcast in the Cincinnati area. The Fox affiliate will produce a half-hour weekday show devoted to weather.
“Having two meteorologists already in place makes it an easy transition,” WXIX general manager Bill Lanesey said. “We feel there is a strong appetite for weather first thing in the morning.”
WXIX was the first station in Cincinnati to begin their morning broadcast at 4:30 a.m. The addition of this show to the station lineup will give WXIX eight hours of local news on weekdays, more than any other stations in the market.
