WTTA-TV, the My Network TV affiliate for the Tampa market has added a new local news show entitled Great 38 News Now. The new half hour newscast, airing Sundays at 7pm, focuses on the goings on in the Tampa market and less on the traditional “news” format like other local stations.
The new broadcast is hosted by former Bay News 9 anchor Jenn Holloway and is recorded and produced locally at WTTA’s Tampa studios.
Sinclair Broadcast Group sister station WPEC-TV in West Palm Beach has also started producing daily news updates for the Tampa market. These updates air on WTTA as short segments between programming, three times daily, using anchor and meteorological talent from WPEC.
Check out the promo below for Great 38 News Now for an example.
