(Bleary) Eyewitness News: CBS3 starting a 4:30 a.m. newscast

Sometime this summer, CBS3 will join Fox29's Good Day as the town's early birds by sliding the start of Eyewitness News to 4:30 a.m.

Aside from the actual launch date, the big question is: Who will work the dawn shift with Ukee Washington and Bob Kelly? The weather slot will be open when Doug Kammerer clears out, and the femme anchor seat has been vacated by Liz Keptner.

Also, CBS3 plans to revive the Saturday morning newscast (6 to 7 a.m.), which it pulled in January 2009. Most likely anchors will be Anne-Marie Green and Lesley Van Arsdall.

The info was tipped on Twitter by CBS3 anchor Chris May.
