Since it began programming separately from WBT in the late 1960's, WBCY has shared a joint news operation with its AM sister station.
Bob Kaghan, WBCY program director, says the hiring of its own news director signifies the station's strong commitment to news as part of its programming. The expansion of the news staff will also enable the station to extend its schedule of newscasts into the afternoon drivetim e period.
WBCY News will share facilities and work closely with WBT News, but the two departments will be administratively separately.
