WNYW’s ratings started slumping a bit in 2002, and new management from Fox’s Detroit station was brought in to spruce things up. The “Ten O’ Clock News” name was changed to “Fox 5 News At Ten”, John Roland was moved to the 5pm newscast and Len Cannon was brought in from NBC. The news got glossier and the anchors don’t even spend much time at the desk.
