HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) - November 9th marks the 26th anniversary of the first morning newscast on WYMT.
Before that, the station only did brief 5-minute updates in the morning.
The 30-minute “Mountain News This Morning” aired on November 9th, 1992. The morning newscast has expanded through the years and it is now two hours on weekdays, from 5-7 a.m.
We recently discovered a copy of the entire first newscast, including commercials, and are posting it on the web for the first time.
The news anchors were Shawn Ley and Marti Leach. Ley is now an anchor in Detroit, Michigan.
