Because audiences want news quickly, on demand, KXLY has the added advantage of using its AM radio station to complement and cross-promote its newscasts, Mc Rae said.
Woodward admits the shift to morning news has been demanding, beyond starting her day much earlier.

Herling said the best time to measure those gains will be the November book.

That’s one reason the rebranding of Woodward will continue and evolve, Gibbon said.
Mc Rae agrees on the difficulty of changing viewer perceptions.
