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. How can any company that has the cash and other assets be allowed to simply foreclose and not pay the debt? Simon, pay the debt and sell the property yourself. Don't just stiff the bank with the loan and require them to find a buyer.

  2. If you only knew....

  3. The proposal is structured in such a way that a private company (who has competitors in the marketplace) has struck a deal to get "financing" through utility ratepayers via IPL. Competitors to BlueIndy are at disadvantage now. The story isn't "how green can we be" but how creative "financing" through captive ratepayers benefits a company whose proposal should sink or float in the competitive marketplace without customer funding. If it was a great idea there would be financing available. IBJ needs to be doing a story on the utility ratemaking piece of this (which is pretty complicated) but instead it suggests that folks are whining about paying for being green.

  4. The facts contained in your post make your position so much more credible than those based on sheer emotion. Thanks for enlightening us.

  5. Please consider a couple of economic realities: First, retail is more consolidated now than it was when malls like this were built. There used to be many department stores. Now, in essence, there is one--Macy's. Right off, you've eliminated the need for multiple anchor stores in malls. And in-line retailers have consolidated or folded or have stopped building new stores because so much of their business is now online. The Limited, for example, Next, malls are closing all over the country, even some of the former gems are now derelict.Times change. And finally, as the income level of any particular area declines, so do the retail offerings. Sad, but true.
