NBC5 ANNOUNCES LAUNCH OF 4 P.M. NEWSCAST

NBC5 announce the launch of their first 4 p.m. newscast on Monday, September 11th -- a full additional hour of important local news and weather information every weekday evening.
 

“Our mission has always been to serve our communities in Vermont and Northern New York to the highest journalistic standards,” says NBC5 President and General Manager Ryan Rothstein. “Between coming out of a global pandemic, entering an extraordinary political season that will have very real cultural and societal impact, and dealing with the effects of climate change on our local agriculture and tourism industries, it is crucial that NBC5 provide more opportunities to inform the public with ever-evolving, need-to-know information that effects our communities.”

To spearhead the 4 p.m. news program, NBC5 is promoting eight-year veteran reporter Liz Strzepa to anchor the show and adding Jack Thurston -- a familiar face to viewers in the region; Thurston now brings his unparalleled local knowledge and award-winning journalistic integrity to the 4 p.m. news. Thurston will be reporting on-air starting today.

“Jack Thurston and Liz Strzepa bring nearly 30 years of combined reporting experience in our market to the anchor desk,” said NBC5 News Director, Michael LaFlesh. “That’s nearly three decades of listening to people in our communities, hearing their experiences and learning their needs. With their experience and Tyler Jankoski’s proven local weather expertise and leadership, we couldn’t be more excited to start this new chapter in NBC5’s history of serving Vermont and Northern New York.”
