PIX 11 News (308419)

WPIX-TV (PIX11) launched a new live hour-long weekday newscast at 4 p.m. on Monday. The newscast will be anchored by Tamsen Fadal, Vanessa Freeman, and weatherman Mr. G.

While the newscast will cover all the major news of the day and follow breaking news whenever it occurs, it will also reflect what’s going on in the broader community. Fadal will look closely at women’s issues, an area she’s focused on and written about often. Freeman, a young working mother herself, will delve into critical parenting issues. In addition to presenting the weather, Mr. G will also report human interest stories from the neighborhoods of the five-borough area.

Expanding upon the “PIX11 Cares” initiative, the newscast will host a “community corner,” inviting the area’s leaders and local service organizations on air to discuss their most important concerns.
