KPTM’s 4 p.m. Newscast to Debut Monday

Local TV viewers will have another choice for news at 4 p.m. beginning Monday, as KPTM will launch a 4 p.m. newscast and debut its new set.

It will be a one-hour newscast, and will be anchored by Amanda Mueller and Taylor Wilson, who also anchor KPTM’s 9 p.m. one-hour newscast. Tyson Pearsall will handle weather, with J.J. Davis on sports.

“It’s an opportunity to bring newsmakers in-house to be on the scene of events that are happening in the afternoon, but to also be a part of news that’s happening all around the world,” said Joe Radske, news director at KPTM.

Mayor Mike Fahey will be an in-studio guest next Thursday, Sept. 20.
