Whose national news does WDBC carry?

Occasionally I'll listen to WDBC 680 just for something different. Thought they used to have ABC news, but I don't recognize the national news they have at the top of the hour now. Just comes on with no ID and the announcer goes right into the news. This morning's announcer identified as Christopher Cruise (sp?). Googling that name didn't really help much. Anyone recognize their newscast?

Westwood one offers a "white label" (unbranded) top of the hour news service to affilaites of its 24/7 music formats. I believe this is what WDBC is using. It is a predecessor to the former CNN radio.

Of course, back in the day, they were a CBS Radio News station - back when having CBS was ultra-prestigious.
"This is WDBC Escanaba - State Bank of Escanaba time and temperature sign indicates 48 degrees - it's 2 o'clock".. Bong! CBS news....
