Metro Detroit: Newsmakers Mar. 29, 2009




Detroit Free Press:

The Free Press will soon be coming to a television screen near you. In a new venture, the Free Press and WWJ-TV, the CBS affiliate in Detroit, will partner to produce news segments during the station's "First Forecast Mornings" segment beginning in May. With the station providing traffic and weather updates, the Free Press will provide news headlines and other material between 5 a.m. and 7 a.m. Beyond headlines, the segments will feature exclusive Free Press stories across a range of topics. "Everybody's going to want to know the water-cooler talk, a great news story, a sports team won, a tragedy or whatever it is," said Trey Fabacher, vice president and general manager of WWJ-TV. "Who better to give those top couple of stories" than the Free Press? he asked. Nancy Andrews, Free Press managing editor of digital media, called the TV segments "the next logical step forward" as the paper creates ways to reach its audience... Free Press will join WWJ-TV for reports (Sun, 3/29)
