Local 6 will soon add another afternoon newscast to its lineup.

Effective July 7, WKMG-TV Local 6 will begin broadcasting a 5:30 p.m. weekday newscast.

“The time is right for us to return to 5:30 news,” said Vice President and General Manager Skip Valet.  “Viewers enjoy the story telling from our talented team of journalists, and now they can watch local news on Local 6 at 5, 5:30, 6 and 7 p.m."

Valet said the new newscast will fit the mold of the others.

"We produce newscasts that accurately reflect life in Central Florida. Our news team goes well beyond the police blotter.  Local 6 newscasts include stories about health, the economy, ways you can get more for your money and some uplifting stories as well," Valet said.

More information on Local 6's afternoon lineup will be announced closer to the newscast launch date.
