It seems the trend in local news these days is to have a newscast at 4PM.

A number of stations have been taking on and Afternoon newscast and now WKYT in Lexington is one of them.

The new newscast which will replace the failed Anderson Cooper show will be anchored by DeAnn Stephens (Pictured).

"There's no greater lead-in to local news than local news," said WKYT News Director Robert Thomas. "That's why it was a smart decision for us."

If that's the case, just go 24 hour news and call it a day.
