HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Ready for a fun, fresh take on what people are talking about? Join us Monday, August 8 as we launch a brand new local newscast: WHNT News 19 at 4:00 p.m.

You can watch it on TV and on WHNT.com every weekday!

Christine Killimayer and Greg Screws will bring you the first news of the afternoon.  They enjoy picking on each other, in a fun way of course.

“I’m so honored to have this opportunity,” said Killimayer. “I just don’t know who I made mad to get stuck with Screws.”

“Honestly, though, Screws is one of my favorite people in the newsroom and working with him will be a blast for both me and the viewer. We have a fantastic crew creating this newscast from our producer, Tiffany, to our director, Tater, to everyone in between and I’m stoked for it to start.”

Greg echoed that sentiment.

“I’m excited to be a part of this news expansion. It’s a great thing to bring all the news to people who want and need it on all our platforms.”

“Christine is a joy to work with each day, he added. “We’re basically the same person and really enjoy working together.”

Tiffany Morris will produce WHNT News 19 at 4:00 p.m.  A veteran of our station, Tiffany joined our team in 2005 after graduating from Auburn.  Around the newsroom, we see her buckle down with a keen focus during breaking news and severe weather coverage.  She also has a creative streak and plans to work all of these elements into this brand new hour of news.

“I cannot think of a better team to work with than Greg and Christine,” said Morris. “They are more than just co-workers.  They are close friends of mine.  I think our easy camaraderie will translate well to the viewing audience, making it not only a fun newscast to watch, but one that gives you the news you need to know.”

The team has been rehearsing for the last two weeks. We hope you’ll join us on Monday, August 8 as we begin our new 4 p.m. newscast.  Let us know what you think once you have a chance to watch it.  We want to make sure we’re serving your news, weather and information needs.

For fans of Steve Harvey, the show will move to WHNT2 Monday, August 8. If you need help finding WHNT2, we’ve got you covered.
