On Your Side Tonight With Jamie Boll promises to be a thoughtful, in-depth news program responsive to viewer questions, concerns and curiosities.”
Jamie Boll is an award-winning journalist who has been with WBTV since March 2005. He currently anchors WBTV’s 4 and 5:30 p.m. newscasts, as well as producing investigative and political reporting.
“Reporting the news today demands a very fast pace. But, we also see the need to take a longer look each day at how what’s happening in the news is affecting our community,” said Boll.
“Our goal is to teach ourselves and our viewers something new every night and we’re excited to get going.”
The addition of On Your Side Tonight with Jamie Boll brings the amount of local programming produced by WBTV to 52 hours each week, the most in the Charlotte market, according to the station.
“This shows our commitment to deliver even more quality local journalism produced right here in this community,” said Scott Dempsey, WBTV’s general manager.
“It’s part of our ongoing mission to be available when and where our audience demands.”
On Your Side Tonight With Jamie Boll follows WBTV Primetime, and replaces Access Hollywood, which will air at a different time.
