EL PASO, Texas -

KVIA-TV ABC 7 announced today the station will produce a live 30-minute newscast to air at 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, beginning Monday, March 25 on the El Paso/Las Cruces CW.   The channel can be seen on over the air digital television 7.2, Time Warner Cable analog 13 and digital 876, and Comcast cable 14 in Las Cruces.

The newscast will be anchored by longtime ABC 7 anchor and reporter Stephanie Valle.  ABC7 StormTRACK meteorologist Karla Huelga will provide an accurate, reliable weather forecast.

“Since the El Paso/Las Cruces CW launched in 2007, we’ve wanted to provide the station’s viewers with news and weather,” commented KVIA general manager Kevin Lovell.  “Now that the station is well established, we’re ready to use ABC7’s resources to bring CW viewers a newscast that’s an hour earlier than our ABC7 10 p.m. newscast.”

Reporter Denise Olivas, who currently also anchors Good Morning El Paso Weekend, will start reporting for Good Morning El Paso on weekdays and co-anchor the noon show with Bob Harp.
