Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

WXIN-TV Channel 59 said on Tuesday that it will add an hour-long newscast at 6 p.m. weekdays beginning Sept. 10.

With the additional five hours of news per week, Fox 59 plans to add six employees at the television station, which will produce 60 hours of news programming each week.

“Fox59’s top priority is continuing to offer the most news and information, at a variety of times that are convenient to our viewers,” said Larry Delia, the station’s vice president and general manager, in a prepared statement. “There is no other station more committed to serving central Indiana.”

Since 2009, Fox59 has added half-hour newscasts at 4 a.m. and 4:30 a.m., in addition to hour-long newscasts at 9 a.m., 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays. The station also added four hours of morning news on both Saturdays and Sundays.

  • FOX NEWS
    Fox needs to broadcast their weather report before 10:45 during the week. We start out watching FOX News, then switch over to channel 23 for WishTV's weather because it is on earlier...then we can even watch the sports cast on WISHTV, and go to bed before FOX even airs the weather.
  • passing through
    Local tv stations do seem to have an ever changing parade of very attractive and very young reporters who may look nice, but often are from out of state and are just passing through. As such they often have no real deep knowledge of the city or state.
  • ehh...
    However much I love Fox 59's style and personality...I don't really watch the "after work" newscast as I'm trying to do things around the house and play with my kids. I do appreciate the 10PM newscast though...Always watch!

  • Prediction
    Another ditsy, blonde, anchorgirl and some non-descript guy --- just like all the others.

  1. The $104K to CRC would go toward debts service on $486M of existing debt they already have from other things outside this project. Keystone buys the bonds for 3.8M from CRC, and CRC in turn pays for the parking and site work, and some time later CRC buys them back (with interest) from the projected annual property tax revenue from the entire TIF district (est. $415K / yr. from just this property, plus more from all the other property in the TIF district), which in theory would be about a 10-year term, give-or-take. CRC is basically betting on the future, that property values will increase, driving up the tax revenue to the limit of the annual increase cap on commercial property (I think that's 3%). It should be noted that Keystone can't print money (unlike the Federal Treasury) so commercial property tax can only come from consumers, in this case the apartment renters and consumers of the goods and services offered by the ground floor retailers, and employees in the form of lower non-mandatory compensation items, such as bonuses, benefits, 401K match, etc.

  2. $3B would hurt Lilly's bottom line if there were no insurance or Indemnity Agreement, but there is no way that large an award will be upheld on appeal. What's surprising is that the trial judge refused to reduce it. She must have thought there was evidence of a flagrant, unconscionable coverup and wanted to send a message.

  3. As a self-employed individual, I always saw outrageous price increases every year in a health insurance plan with preexisting condition costs -- something most employed groups never had to worry about. With spouse, I saw ALL Indiana "free market answer" plans' premiums raise 25%-45% each year.

  4. It's not who you chose to build it's how they build it. Architects and engineers decide how and what to use to build. builders just do the work. Architects & engineers still think the tarp over the escalators out at airport will hold for third time when it snows, ice storms.
