This fundraiser is part of an ongoing initiative between WXIN FOX59 and Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana and Midwest Food Bank of Indiana. The station helped raise more than $340k for the cause over several events in 2020.
Veteran marketing and creative executive Drew Fowler has been named marketing director for Nexstar Media’s Indianapolis businesses: WXIN (Fox 59), WTTV (CBS 4) and their respective websites.
WXIN Indianapolis launched an hour-long lifestyle show in September. In October, it was the No. 1-rated program in its time slot. Good planning, a winning news lead-in, great talent and solid marketing have made Indy Now a winner with local advertisers and viewers while reflecting Nexstar’s corporate vision.
Jillian Deam and Ryan Ahlwardt will host the hour-long Indy Now, a lifestyle entertainment show, that debuts Monday morning, Sept. 13.
TV stations across the country continue to lead efforts to help those in need in their communities in a variety of ways.
“The need is now,” said Dominic Mancuso, WTTV/WXIN’s general manager. “We asked the staff, can we turn this around quick, and they answered with a resounding ‘yes’.”
Thanks to WIVB, Nexstar’s CBS affiliate in Buffalo, and their partner, Colvin Cleaners, thousands of kids will be ready for winter this year thanks to their Coats 4 Kids campaign. “As long as there are kids in need and Buffalo winters, we can never collect enough coats, hats, and gloves,” said Dominic Mancuso, WIVB’S general manager.
