No More Local Morning News on Detroit’s WWJ

CBS owned station WWJ has announced it will be dropping its morning news show, “First Forecast Mornings.”

“WWJ remains committed to local programming where it makes sense,” the station said in a statement. “We will continue to do local weather reports at 5 and 11 p.m., our weekly public affairs show and local specials.”

The two hour morning news show features anchors Syma Chowdhry, Jill Washburn, and Randy Bhirdo.  It’s the sole traditional newscast aired by WWJ.

The final broadcast for “First Forecast Mornings” will be Friday, December 28.

Broadcasting & Cable reported the station will fill the morning slot with a combination of CBS network news from 5 to 6 a.m. and “Dr. Phil” from 6 to 7 a.m.
