WSFL-TV - Newscasts


In 1997, NBC affiliate WTVJ and the Sun-Sentinel began to co-produce a nightly 10 o'clock newscast on WDZL known as WB 39 News at 10. When the station became a CW affiliate, the news title changed to CW News at 10. On March 5, 2008, WSFL began broadcasting the 10 o'clock newscast in high definition when WTVJ made the upgrade. For the duration of the 2008 Summer Olympics, WSFL's newscast featured two anchors and closely mirrored news programs that air on WTVJ. The 10 p.m. news was broadcast from the same set WTVJ uses at Peacock Plaza in Miramar. Only that the set's duratrans were changed nightly to reflect the 10 p.m. newscast. The WTVJ news on WSFL was a similar operation to Tribune-outsourced newscasts that air on sister stations WPHL-TV and KRCW-TV.

On August 26, 2008, WTVJ and WSFL agreed to end the 10 o'clock newscast, most likely due to WTVJ's now-aborted acquisition by Post-Newsweek Stations who owns ABC affiliate WPLG, with the final broadcast airing on August 31. A weekday morning show began airing on April 13, 2009. It was broadcast out of the newspaper's former auditorium on the first floor of the Sun-Sentinel building on Las Olas in Fort Lauderdale, and aired from 5 to 9 a.m. The Morning Show was canceled on August 4, 2010 due to low ratings. The station continues to produce the public affairs program South Florida Voices, on Sunday mornings at 6 a.m., that is hosted by Deborah Ally; this program was relaunched with a new host and under a new title in September 2010. WSFL also launched five nightly news updates in mid-August 2010. It also airs local news inserts during the KDAF-produced EyeOpener morning show.

Other than the news updates, WSFL does not carry traditional local newscasts; it is one of only five Tribune-owned stations not carrying daily newscasts (alongside WNOL/New Orleans, WCCT/Hartford-New Haven, WTTV/Indianapolis and WDCW/Washington, D.C.).
