WLUC-TV (Negaunee-Marquette) has announced that it is launching a new half hour live news program, “TV6 First Look”, beginning April 23.  The program will be a production of TV6 News, and will be seen weekdays at 5 p.m. Eastern.

WLUC-TV Vice President and General Manager, Rick Rhoades said, “We know that our viewers here in Upper Michigan have an almost insatiable appetite for news about the U.P. ‘TV6 First Look’ will expand our local news footprint. TV6 has been Upper Michigan’s source for local news and local programming for 62 years. And, April 23 is significant because on that day in 1956, TV6 began broadcasting in the U.P. Looking forward, we feel that the future of local TV depends on expanding that localism. ‘TV6 First Look’ is part of a continuing effort to provide more local news to the viewers of Upper Michigan.”

“The expansion of the TV6 News with this new newscast is exciting. The program is called ‘TV6 First Look’. That’s exactly what it is—your first look at the news of the day from around Upper Michigan and what’s happening tonight and tomorrow,” said TV6 & FOX UP News Director Steve Asplund.
