Former CW33 anchor Walt Maciborski already popping up in new promo for Indy's Fox station

Hmm, he seems to look happier -- and more relaxed.

Anchor-reporter Walt Maciborski, who left traumatized Dallas-based CW33 in mid-August, already is shown in a new promo for Indianapolis Fox affiliate WXIN-TV (Fox 59), which is adding a one-hour 6 p.m. newscast on Monday, Sept. 10th.

An animated, smiling Maciborski, coatless in a powder blue shirt, can be glimpsed about halfway through the below promo.

"You know us. We bring you the news," says a pitchman, even though Indianapolis viewers don't yet know Maciborski.

The station is adding more news, because, well, you know, the news never stops.

"We're kind of like family," says the promo. "When you need us, we're there."

Maciborski, who joined CW33 in February 2009, landed safely on his feet before staffers were informed Tuesday that they'll have to reapply for newly defined jobs at the Tribune-owned station. The current 5 and 9 p.m. newscasts are in the process of being remolded in the likeness of Tribune's early morning Eye Opener, which has a decided comedic bent.

Here's the new 30-second image spot for WXIN:
