The WTAX Morning Newswatch

The WTAX Morning Newswatch

You’re busy.

As you start your day, you have to get the kids ready for school, get the kids breakfast, make sure you have everything ready for work… and then there’s the matter of getting past the 6th Street Split or north on Veterans without pulling your hair out.

We get it. We’ve been there, that’s why we’ve created the Morning Newswatch.

On the Morning Newswatch, we bring you news at the top and bottom of each hour, plus news you won’t want to miss before you hit the water cooler at work. We bring you the day’s hottest trending stories at :23 after the hour.

Ashley Gibson gives you sports at :20 and :50, and don’t forget about weather on the 9’s all morning long. The WTAX Marketwatch Report at :27 and :57 updates you on business news, and get a head start on what the WTAX News staff is working on with the WTAX Daybook at 6:15.

So come on in and stay a while, or if you can’t, don’t. Listening for 10-15 minutes at a time will give you all the info you need to start your day.
