TULSA – Dec. 3, 2013 – KOKI-TV is now expanding its fast growing morning news program to weekends.
The station’s award-winning morning news launched in April 2006 and has been growing ever since. FOX23 News This Morning is currently Green Country’s only station with non-stop local news coverage from 5 to 9 am.

The weekend edition of FOX23 News This Morning will be anchored by Tulsa native and award-winning journalist, Tiffany Alaniz.

Certified Meteorologist, John Boyer will join Tiffany on FOX23 News This Morning when the new expanded schedule launches on Saturday, January 4th, 2014 at 7am.
