NEXSTAR — WGN America will launch a live, prime-time national newscast this summer. Nexstar, the company that manages this station and WGN America, is proud to announce the anchors and a premiere date of September 1st.

The 3-hour newscast is called “News Nation” and it will air every night from 7:00 – 10:00 P.M. central time. “News Nation” will be a fact-based, unbiased newscast, telling stories from across the country that impact you and your family.

There will be a heavy emphasis on breaking news and forecasting and following severe weather.
While other cable news shows are broadcasting opinionated talk, “News Nation” will stick to the facts and inform you about what’s happening around the country.
