HIGH POINT, N.C. — WGHP announced Monday the FOX8 4:00 p.m. News will launch on April 21.

“The 4 p.m. newscast will be very different from the 5 and 6 p.m. hours,” says Karen Koutsky, WGHP’s news director. “Viewers are looking for more consumer news, entertainment and fun at that hour. Of course, we’ll still cover weather, breaking news and headlines, but we’ll also have something a little different to offer.”

The newscast will increase WGHP’s total to 10.5 hours of news content every weekday.

New afternoon WGHP schedule beginning April 21:
FOX8 News: 12-1 p.m.
Wendy Williams: 1-2 p.m.
Divorce Court: 2-2:30 p.m.
Judge Alex: 2:30-3 p.m.
Judge Judy: 3-4 p.m.
FOX8 News: 4-7 p.m.

    So, from noon til 7 there’s not much worth watching.. But that’s the same with all stations..

  • TooMuchNews

    Come on Fox give it a break, what is your agenda and don’t say informing the community. This is ridiculous.

  • batty

    Oh well will need to find another channel to watch since Judge Judy will not be on at this time. To much news on now.

    It appears you all are trying to be a 24hr. news station. I liked the other programming. I didn’t see the need of an additional 1/2 hr. at lunch, nor adding another 1/2 hr. at 6:30p.m. If all I wanted to see is news I can look at the Time Warner News Channel. It would be different if the news changed, but you all are just repeating the same ole news. Do not like this format.

    A 10.5 hour informational, babysitting, job hunter, traffic, and have I given it away yet they just getting down low with the stay local theme. In more hours then cnn or news of national attention then having that much time here local.
    I do not know what the reason for the news at four and 10.5 hours of news, except I am going to like it more this spring and summer seeing live shots of the city events and happening bars and restaurants along with the tour guide that the fox 8 news will bring more of any weather and in any breaking news it will be told local and best be a good one to be in the 10.5 hour prayer time that it will service the faithful in news of any better days in this twisted and mixed of world and that is just the weather that will be making happy souls as the summer thunderstorms will be a saver event.

    It is so upsetting another hr.of bad news!
    Why do we need all this news so EARLY
    31/2 hrs of over and over again the same stuff you said a hour before.
    Not happy

    Ok folks. I’m pretty sure the point of them adding more news time is NOT to be able to fill it all with totally different stories, expecting everyone to watch every single minute. People have different schedules with work, school and family obligations. By providing news at many different times of day, FOX8 is making it more convenient for you to see the news when you have the time to sit down and watch for a few minutes. Seems like a pretty good thing, no??
