NBC's WCAU had previously produced news for the MyNetworkTV affiliate. ABC-owned WPVI is a news power in DMA No. 4.
"This is about giving viewers what they want. We have many Action News viewers who prefer local news in primetime and 10 p.m. on PHL17 offers a wonderful opportunity," says WPVI president and general manager Bernie Prazenica. "We are thrilled to bring Action News to the primetime audience and we're delighted to be on a respected station like PHL17."
WPHL is broadcast home of the Phillies. It added Eye Opener news programming in October.
"Bringing Action News to our prime time schedule is a tremendous addition," says Vince Giannini, vice president and general manager, PHL17. "We are proud to partner with 6abc, the leading news provider in the Delaware Valley. We strive to give our viewers the best local programming possible, and when it comes to Philadelphia, no one beats Action News."
