A 10:00 p.m. newscast on WFFF, the local Fox affiliate also known as Fox 44, hit the airwaves last night.

WFFF, a Fox News affiliate also known as Fox44, hit the airwaves last night, offering a 30-minute newscast starting at 10 p.m.

The new station is broadcasting from a new newsroom and 1,200-square foot studio. WFFF-Fox44 is undaunted by the prospect of starting up in the nation’s 92nd-biggest market, despite the presence of WPTZ-Channel 5 in Plattsburgh, N.Y., and WCAX-Channel 3 in Burlington.

It’s the first time the Champlain Valley has had three TV news outlets since 2003, when ABC affiliate WVNY folded, unable to make inroads into the market.
