Calkins Media’s ABC affiliate WWSB-TV Tampa will launch "ABC 7 News at 7:00" on Sept. 14 to focus on investigative reporting and discussions with local newsmakers. It will be anchored by Emmy award-winning journalist Alan Cohn, who also won a George Foster Peabody award in 2007 for a story on defective parts installed on Black Hawk helicopters. “We... believe strongly in localism and have expanded our commitment to providing quality news and local programming,” said General Manager Jeff Benninghoff. “We believe that this 7 p.m. newscast will provide the perfect forum for more in-depth reporting — and debate — on important issues and stories in the Suncoast community.”
