Fox 17 Starts Morning News Show
Fox 17 has launched its morning newscast, that airs from 5 a.m. to 7 a.m. each morning of the week. In fact the show is so new, there's not a mention of it on Fox 17's Web site. The show was unveiled just in time for sweeps. What's surprising is that the station seems to have missed an opportunity to fill a local niche - local news from 7 to 8 when all of the other network stations must cut away to the network morning shows. Instead Fox airs its "Tennessee Mornings" in that timeslot. The newscast is anchored by long time Nashville TV personality Sharon Puckett (28 years at WSMV) along with Nick Paranjape. Paranjape is originally from Murfreesboro and has worked in TV in Tupelo, MS, Jackson, TN, Knoxville and Memphis.
