Indianapolis, IN – September 9, 2013 – Today, WISH-TV expanded its morning newscast, Daybreak, beginning at 4:30 a.m.
“We have seen an increase in viewers’ desire for earlier news, so we wanted to deliver our great Daybreak news product to that audience,” said WISH-TV news director Steve Bray. “From bringing viewers up-to-date on overnight news, and breaking news, weather and traffic; our team works hard to get our viewers ready for their day ahead with all the information they need.”
WISH-TV has been a pioneer in local morning news, launching Daybreak, Central Indiana’s first morning newscast, in 1984. In nearly 30 years on the air, 24-Hour News 8’s Daybreak has continued that commitment to morning news viewers, by keeping up with their changing lives, expanding its coverage both Monday through Friday and on the weekends. Earlier this year, 24-Hour News 8’s Daybreak was honored as Best Newscast by the Associated Press.
24-Hour News 8’s Daybreak, anchored by Scott Sander, Lauren Lowrey, Forecast 8 meteorologist Randy Ollis and traffic reporter Julie Patterson (pictured above), can be seen weekday mornings 4:30 a.m. – 7 a.m. on WISH-TV, and 7 a.m. – 8 a.m. on MyINDY-TV 23.
