In 1996, NBC associates WIS entered into a news share agreement to produce a primetime newscast at 10 p.m. for WACH, the first such primetime newscast in the Columbia market and one of the first in South Carolina. For many years, it was one of the highest-rated primetime newscasts in the nation. On September 28, 2009, WACH became the first television station in the Columbia market to begin broadcasting its local newscasts in 16:9 widescreen standard definition, alongside the introduction of a new graphics package. Video from within the main studio, field cameras and other station camera feeds are upconverted to a 16:9 widescreen format in the control room. On November 9, 2009, the station debuted a half-hour early evening newscast at 7:30 p.m. weeknights called the WACH Fox Report, which maintained an entertainment-focused format. In April 2010, WACH familiarized a new set and overhauled the graphics for its newscasts; former anchor Arielle Riposta also returned to the station as weeknight co-anchor of the 10 p.m. newscast.
