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. If what you stated is true, then this article is entirely inaccurate. "State sells bonds" is same as "State borrows money". Supposedly the company will "pay for them". But since we are paying the company, we are still paying for this road with borrowed money, even though the state has $2 billion in the bank.

  2. Andrew hit the nail on the head. AMTRAK provides terrible service and that is why the state has found a contractor to improve the service. More trips, on-time performance, better times, cleanliness and adequate or better restrooms. WI-FI and food service will also be provided. Transit from outlying areas will also be provided. I wouldn't take it the way it is but with the above services and marketing of the service,ridership will improve and more folks will explore Indy and may even want to move here.

  3. They could take the property using eminent domain and save money by not paying the church or building a soccer field and a new driveway. Ctrwd has monthly meetings open to all customers of the district. The meetings are listed and if the customers really cared that much they would show. Ctrwd works hard in every way they can to make sure the customer is put first. Overflows damage the surrounding environment and cost a lot of money every year. There have been many upgrades done through the years to help not send flow to Carmel. Even with the upgrades ctrwd cannot always keep up. I understand how a storage tank could be an eye sore, but has anyone thought to look at other lift stations or storage tanks. Most lift stations are right in the middle of neighborhoods. Some close to schools and soccer fields, and some right in back yards, or at least next to a back yard. We all have to work together to come up with a proper solution. The proposed solution by ctrwd is the best one offered so far.

  4. Fox has comments from several people that seem to have some inside information. I would refer to their website. Changed my whole opionion of this story.

  5. This place is great! I'm piggy backing and saying the Cobb salad is great. But the ribs are awesome. $6.49 for ribs and 2 sides?! They're delicious. If you work downtown, head over there.
