WAFB will start airing the national anthem every weekday to end the noon newscast

By WAFB Staff | June 13, 2019 at 4:21 PM CDT - Updated June 13 at 4:21 PM BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB)

- WAFB is proud to announce the station will begin airing the national anthem each weekday at the end of the station’s noon newscast. “We are thrilled to be taking part in this patriotic effort,” said WAFB Vice President and General Manager Ronna Corrente.

“This is a way to show our appreciation to the people who defend our freedom and to be thankful that we call America home.”

WAFB, which is owned by Gray Television, will join Gray stations in 93 markets across the country in regularly airing The Star-Spangled Banner. Gray Media Group’s Executive Chairman and CEO Hilton Howell announced the initiative in early June in New Orleans during the broadcast company’s annual meeting of news directors. The highly-produced video stations will air features beautiful scenes from around the country as a 9 year old Florida girl sings the anthem. Howell says more versions featuring other singers will be produced going forward. The original version that will debut on WAFB Friday, June 14 features singer, Reina Özbay. She has been inspiring crowds with her performances since she was 4 years old. Her angelic soprano voice is classically trained, and she studies opera and musical theater.

Reina’s mother says her daughter’s birthday is July 3 and “the evening she was born there was a massive fireworks display outside of the hospital window at the Milwaukee lakefront."

This will certainly trigger some baton rougeans that frequent the north side of town.

It's going to be especially sweet since it's ending the noon newscast. Most of those who will be triggered by it are at home watching the news at noon every day.

It won't be racist when a certain president isn't president anymore. You knew that when you asked this question.

Odd timing with this. While I love the their patriotic intentions, who still watches local cable news? Isn’t it well documented that ratings for local news are down across the country?
