Rhonda Walker: Why I’m excited about our new 7 a.m. streaming news

News streaming on Local 4+ app for TVs

Local 4 News at 7 a.m. (WDIV)

We are so excited to launch our streaming channel and the opportunity it gives us to give you more local news.

We know national news is important, but only having that option at certain times of the day may mean you miss so many of the important informative local stories we cover.

That’s why we are so excited for our new 7 a.m. streaming morning show, which is an extension of our 4:30 – 7 a.m. morning show you normally watch on TV.

Now you can stick around with us and switch over to our Local 4+ streaming channel at 7 a.m., or if you are just waking up at 7 a.m., you will finally be able to watch our morning show live!

What I’m most looking forward to is the opportunity to provide even more local stories you care about and in your own community.  It broadens our ability to do more because we get more time on the air with you.  We’ll have great live interviews, informative investigative reports, great feature stories that will tug on your heart strings, inspire you, teach you something you didn’t know, motivate you to try something new, wake you up with a joyful smile, a belly laugh and so much more.

We’ll get you the hard news to the trending stories everyone is talking about, and take you beyond the headlines for more depth and information.

So please take a moment now to get ready and download our streaming app Local 4+ on your Smart TV or TV streaming devices, like Apple TV, Roku or Amazon Firestick, and get ready to catch Local 4 News at 7 a.m. debut on April 4th (one week from today!)

And of course we also have you covered always - weekdays from 4:30 a.m. – 7 a.m. on Local 4!

See you when you wake up, and thanks for watching!
