NECN to launch new show

Beginning on Monday, Sept. 24, NECN will bring New Englanders "News Day Live,'' a distinctive mix of breaking news, weather reports, frequent traffic updates, sports coverage, live field reports from across New England, and in-depth analysis with newsmakers and key NECN journalists.
The new show, which will air from 4 to 6 p.m., will be co-anchored by Beth Shelburne and Leslie Gaydos Monday through Thursday, and by Shelburne and Ally Donnelly on Fridays.
"NewsNight" host Jim Braude will be a regular contributor, offering his unique brand of opinion and analysis on the most important stories of the day.
"In a real sense, this is what makes NECN distinctive - a timely combination of up-to-the-minute news with a dedication to depth and analysis,'' said NECN Vice President of News and Station Manager Charles J. Kravetz.
"We're putting new resources to work in this important time period so that our viewers will get an unmatched level of news and analysis,'' Kravetz said, "not just news of New England but news for New England, wherever it happens -- locally, nationally or globally.''
NECN is the largest, most honored 24-hour regional news network in the country, with 3.7 million subscribers in more than 1,050 cities and towns in all six New England states. It is a partnership of Comcast and the Hearst Corporation.
