WILX Expands News Coverage to 4 p.m.

News for you is now news 4 you. 

WILX-TV 10 expanded its weekday news coverage of the Greater Lansing region May 8 with the launch of the “First @ 4” broadcast May 8.  

“First @ 4” is mid-Michigan’s only 4 p.m. newscast and immediately follows the lifestyle show “Studio 10.” The newscast is hosted by anchor Taylor Gattoni and features the day’s biggest stories and live interviews with local newsmakers. First Alert meteorologists Justin Bradford and Colton Cichoracki also join the newscast to keep viewers up to date on what to expect with the First Alert Forecast.  

“I’m looking forward to bringing viewers live interviews for ‘Mid-Michigan Matters’ on mid-Michigan’s only 4 p.m. newscast,” said Gattoni. “It’s exciting to be part of a team that has core values that connect with our community.”  

Gattoni was recently named the anchor of “News 10 Today” at 11 a.m. and can also be seen on News 10′s digital platforms streaming breaking news and live events.  

“I’m extremely proud of the work our team has put in to make ‘First @ 4’ a fantastic product,” said WILX General Manager Debbie Petersmark. “And we’re excited to provide viewers with local news starting an hour earlier.”  

“First @ 4” will be followed by “Jeopardy” on WILX, leading up to News 10’s 90 minutes of news starting at 5 p.m. with anchors David Andrews and Ann Emmerich, metrologist Andy Provenzano, and sports co-director Tim Staudt.
