WXIN, Tribune’s Fox affiliate in Indianapolis, hit the road to produce its morning newscast in a town about about 20 miles from Indianapolis. It’s not easy to take a station’s morning newscast out of the studio to a remote location. But if you read some of the comments posted on WXIN’s Facebook page, you’ll see that viewers love it.
By donating $15,000 to nonprofit, RIP Medical Debt, WXIN will forgive $1.5 million dollars in medical debt for almost one thousand people. “Every day we tell the stories that affect our viewers and when we can find a way to change the lives of the people we serve, it is a privilege,” said Jamie Aitke, WXIN’s general manager.
