Nexstar expands local TV news operations in Greater Washington

by | May 30, 2022

Nexstar Media Group Inc  is expanding its local news operations in Greater Washington, bringing together its two area television stations into one Northwest D.C. location and rebranding as D.C. News Now, reports Washington Business Journal.

The Irving, Texas-based company, billed as the largest television station owner in the U.S., said it will combine its D.C.-based CW affiliate WDCW-TV (Channel 50) with Hagerstown, Maryland, independent station WDVM-TV (Channel 25) into a new “state-of-the-art newsroom and studio currently under construction” on Wisconsin Avenue, states WBJ.

The new D.C. News Now will be supported by new satellite news bureaus in Hagerstown and Frederick in Maryland and a third location in Chantilly, according to the announcement. The company said each bureau will be capable of live reporting and staffed by additional journalists.

Nexstar said the new operation will eventually support the launch of a new 9 p.m. nightly newscast on WDVM. Additionally, it will expand its morning news by one hour and add a nightly 30-minute sports highlights show. WDCW will also launch a new nightly 10 p.m. newscast

(In 2021, Nexstar Media Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Nexstar Media Group, acquired The Hill.)
