A process that began at the end of 2012 has finally come to fruition at WVNS 59News.  The station which brings you CBS and FOX has been broadcasting your favorite shows in High Definition for some time.  Now that same high quality picture will be a part of your newscasts too.

Our crews are Working for You around the clock and now with a crystal clear picture.  There is also an upgraded set, with new features to help bring you into the news broadcast and onto the scene where the action is happening.  It all starts at Noon on 59News.
