Makeover for Quad Cities Station

WHBF-TV in the Quad Cities has a new set, new name and new main anchors.  The changes were rolled out in early March, just after the end of the February ratings book. Anchors Jim Niedelman and Tiffany Lundberg, both new to the market, will do the 5, 6 and 10 p.m. newscasts. Chief meteorologist Andy McCray and sports director Jay Kidwell continue in their positions.  (All 4 are pictured above)
The new name is "Local 4," and the new set features was high-definition monitors, expanded areas for weather and sports, and an interview bench.  The backdrop is a mural of Quad-City landmarks.
INBA Member Heather Stevenson is News Director at the station, which is now owned by Nexstar.
