MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — WKRG News 5 is launching a new 4pm newscast called The 4 on 5 Monday, today at 4pm. The announcement was made by Jesse Grear, WKRG Vice President and General Manager.
“We’ve been planning this for quite some time in line with our viewers’ demand for more local
news. The 4 on 5 will give our viewers an early look at the developing stories of the day as
they’re happening,” said Grear.
The 4 on 5 is a fresh take on news from the Gulf Coast’s breaking news leader. It combines

own,” said WKRG News Director Chris Best. “The entire Gulf Coast from our Mississippi
counties all the way to Ft. Walton Beach and Destin can watch their local news at 4pm.”
“I’m proud to anchor The 4 on 5,” said Cherish Lombard. “Our whole team has been working
very hard to put on a show that we hope will excite and inform our viewers across the Gulf
Coast,” she added.
