On April 24, 2006, WNEM-TV entered into a news share agreement with Fox affiliate WSMH for their existing nightly prime time broadcast at 10 on that station. This came about after that station's owner, the Sinclair Broadcast Group, shut down its News Central operation as well as WSMH's news department. Originally entitled TV 5 News at 10 on Fox 66, the WNEM-TV-produced program recently added new graphics and was renamed Fox 66 News at 10. On Monday nights during the newscast, the "Fugitive Files" segment airs.
In August 2009, the station began carrying obituaries following its weekday morning, Noon and 6 o'clock shows. This service began after local major newspapers in the region including The Bay City Times, The Saginaw News, and The Flint Journal reduced publication to three times a week in June 2009. At first a free service when it was launched, WNEM-TV began charging $100 per obituary in September 2009. As of October 19, 2009, over 700 obituaries appeared on the channel and its website "obitmichigan.com". WNEM-TV became the second television in both Michigan and the United States, after WJBK, to air obituaries on a daily basis.
WNEM-TV produces news segments for sister radio station WNEM 1250. In addition to its main facilities, the station operates a Genesee County Bureau at the Wade Trim Building on Saginaw Street in Downtown Flint. This had been located in Mundy Township's Gateway Center until December 2008. The channel airs a local lifestyle magazine show called Better Mid-Michigan, hosted by Aisha Howard, Catherine Bodak and Sarah Jaeger, weekday mornings at 9 with a replay on WNEM-DT2 weeknights at 6. On weekday mornings, that station airs the nationally syndicated morning show The Daily Buzz from 6 to 9. WNEM-DT2 also rebroadcasts the main channel's weeknight 6 o'clock newscast at 7. WNEM-TV operates their own weather radar, known as "First Warn 5 Doppler", on the eastern side of MBS International Airport which is also streamed live on its website.
On October 14, 2010, WNEM-TV began broadcasting its newscasts in a 16:9 standard definition widescreen format; becoming the second station in the market to do so behind WJRT. The WSMH shows were not included in the upgrade because they are broadcast from an older secondary set that currently lacks widescreen-capable cameras. In addition, WSMH lacks a high-definition-capable master control at its separate studios to transmit the newscast in widescreen.
