Things must be improving over at WTVJ, after layoffs and high profile talent leaving the station in the last 2 years, they’ve now added more news on weekends. ‘NBC Miami Today’ will run from 6am to 7am and then from 9am to 10am on Saturdays, and on Sundays from 6am to 8am. Sharon Lawson will anchor the show, with Jennifer Reeves on weather.
The press release says the expanded hours are the result “… of a significant company-wide investment in the 10 NBC-owned stations to further strengthen newsgathering operations”. Guess now that Zucker is out Comcast will perhaps make good on the promise to invest more in the local stations. And WTVJ needs all the help they can get
