Greensboro, NC (July 29, 2011) – News 14 Carolina is set to launch new newscasts that will air on WXLV-TV/ABC 45. Time Warner Cable’s news operation, News 14 Carolina, will produce newscasts Monday – Friday at 6:30 a.m., 6 p.m. and 11p.m. that will air on the ABC affiliate WXLV beginning on January 2, 2012.
“This will be the first time a Time Warner Cable Local News Channel produces newscasts for a network affiliate,” said Alan Mason, vice president and general manager for News 14 Carolina. “It’s a great opportunity to expose our News 14 brand to thousands of viewers who are not Time Warner Cable customers in the Triad television market.”
News 14 Carolina is currently hiring seven new employees to help produce the additional broadcasts. The newscasts will be referred to as “News 14 Carolina on ABC 45” and will bear the News 14 brand.
“At a time when many broadcast outlets are cutting back, we are fortunate to be expanding,” continued Mason. “It’s a true testament to our hard working and talented team that continually strives to provide a great product for our viewers.”
News 14 Carolina is currently only available to viewers in Time Warner Cable service areas in North Carolina. News 14 Carolina is approaching a weekly viewership of nearly 1 million consumers that watch the cable news channel.
