Debuting today, September 6, is KX News at 4:00 p.m., our hour-long local newscast, anchored by Joel Porter and featuring veteran Meteorologist Tom Schrader.

Joel is a native of Wilton and his roots run deep in western North Dakota. He’ll bring a regional perspective to the people, events and news that develop daily and find their way to the 4:00 p.m. report.

Joel and Tom will also be anchoring our regular 5:00 p.m. half-hour newscast.
