ABC stations WABC-TV in New York and WTVD-TV in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina are also launching 10 a.m. newscasts.

The broadcast will fill the time slot previously held by the Tamron Hall show, which - after record-breaking season four ratings - is taking over the 2 p.m. time slot.

"Tamron has had an exceptional year, and I know this move will grow her incredibly passionate Tam Fam even more," said Chad Matthews, president, ABC Owned Television Stations. "And the addition of local news programming at 10 a.m. - led by these extraordinary teams - will allow us to dig even deeper into the topics and events that showcase our local communities and the issues most impacting them, as well as extend and expand upon breaking news and topics being discussed on 'Good Morning America' and 'Live with Kelly and Mark.'"
