WISN-TV to debut 9 p.m. newscast

Dan Needles , Derrick Rose, and Mark Baden

WISN 12 News will launch “WISN 12 News at 9:00 p.m.” on April 1. The half-hour newscast will feature anchor Derrick Rose, Chief Meteorologist Mark Baden, and Sports Director Dan Needles and will air on WISN 12’s multicast channel “Justice Milwaukee.” “Justice Milwaukee” is available over the air on digital channel 12.2, on Spectrum cable channel 985 and on Charter cable channel 180.

“We’re always looking for fresh and innovative ways to deliver our important local coverage to viewers across southeastern Wisconsin,” said Jan Wade, president and general manager of WISN 12. “This newscast is a great opportunity to expand our news to a new platform and new audience, and Derrick is the perfect journalist and storyteller to lead it.”

Rose joined WISN in August 2018 as an investigative reporter. Rose has since investigated radon in schools and uncovered how Tylenol and Advil are twice as effective as opioids prescribed by Wisconsin doctors. Prior to his position at WISN, Rose worked in various roles at stations across the country. He will continue to serve as an investigative reporter for WISN 12 News.
