WDBJ7 will bring an additional half hour of news to the viewers of central and southwestern Virginia beginning Monday. News7 Mornin’ will expand from 90 minutes to two hours, with a new start time of 5 a.m.
“It’s the right time to expand,” says news director Amy Morris. “People are starting their day earlier." Says President/GM Jeffrey Marks, "News7 is available around the clock on wdbj7.com and News7 Now. It makes sense to provide local news on our television channel whenever our viewers are looking for it.”
News7 Mornin’ evolved from Irv Sharp's Mornin’. The CBS Morning News currently airing at 5 a.m. will move to 4:30 a.m.
