However, as of Jan. 1, that's no longer the case as WMGM TV40 has ceased broadcasting the news, according to Pinky Kravitz at PressofAtlanticCity.com.
Seizing an opportunity, News Talk WOND 1400-AM radio will continue to provide a 6 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. weekday news program. The station will also add ABC News at the bottom of each hour to complement its top-of-the-hour newscast, meaning listeners will never be more than 30 minutes away from news.
Dave Coskey, president of WOND’s parent company, Longport Media, said, “it is more important than ever for WOND to strengthen its news product and be a leader in the region and fill any voids.”

Coskey said, “other stations talk about being ‘live and local,’ but at WOND we live it. Our news is produced right here, so we are able to react quickly to local breaking news. And our weather forecasts do not come from out-of-town forecasting services. Our meteorologists are located right here at Broadcast Plaza, in Linwood. That allows us to change and update quickly and provide our listeners with the most accurate and up-to-date information.”
