KTHV, Tegna’s CBS affiliate in Little Rock, is freshening up two newscasts. “We can’t wait to serve our audience in new, unique ways,” said Marty Schack, KTHV’s general manager.
Wake Up Central will take the place of THV11 This Morning. Anchored by Laura Monteverdi, Rob Evans and Amanda Jaeger, Wake Up Central is a fresh take on morning news. It will air weekday mornings, featuring new segments and need-to-know forecasts that breathe the mantra, “live and love local.”
“The Wake Up Central team has a refreshed and innovative vision for morning news,” said Marty Schack, KTHV’s general manager. “We can’t wait to serve our audience in new, unique ways.”
Another show to formally debut is 630Central, hosted by Dawn Scott, KTHV journalist.
Named after a combination of its time period and Interstate 630 that runs through the heart of the Arkansas’ Capital City, 630Central is a conversation that can connect, and sometimes even divide.
Meteorologist Sarah Fortner will join 630Central, alongside host Dawn Scott. Beginning in late October, she’ll appear weeknights on 630Central, and continue her position on THV11 at Noon.
“Sarah certainly understands weather in central Arkansas and has a clear understanding of what’s important to viewers here. 630Central is a perfect fit for her,” said Dave Parker, KTHV’s news director.
The show officially debuts Monday, Oct. 28, at 6:30 p.m.
