In Dayton, WDTN Will Launch 4:30 a.m. Newscast

WDTN, the NBC-affiliate in Dayton, will launch an expanded newscast with a 4:30 a.m. start time on Monday.

“The weather is changing and there’s no better time to give our viewers an even-earlier look at how they should plan their day,” WDTN general manager Lisa Barhorst said in a statement. “We all live busy lives and people are starting their days even earlier.”

WDTN will keep the same anchor team — Dan Edwards and Pam Elliot, with meteorologist Jamie Jarosik — in place for the extra half-hour.

The station will be the third in the market, after CBS-affiliate WHIO and ABC-affiliate WKEF, to start the morning newscast at 4:30 a.m.
