New Anchor Named in Philly

NBC O&O WCAU in Philly has named a new morning Anchor on Weekends. 

Stephania Jimenez will join Dray Clark on the weekend anchor desk replacing Rosemary Connors, who has been promoted to anchor NBC10’s 11 a.m. weekday newscast.

Prior to joining WCAU, Jimenez served as the evening news anchor at KRIS in Corpus Christi, Texas. Prior to that, she worked as an investigative and consumer reporter/anchor for NBC Connecticut in Hartford. Jimenez also worked at KTSM/KDBC in El Paso, Texas.

"We are pleased to welcome Stephania to the NBC10 and Telemundo62 family," said Anzio Williams, vice president of news for NBC10 and Telemundo62. "Our viewers will benefit greatly from her award-winning reporting and storytelling experience."

"I’m excited to return to Philadelphia," said Jimenez. "I spent time here covering the Democratic National Convention in 2016 and appreciated the city’s diverse and walkable neighborhoods, which resembles my hometown."

She starts at the end of the month.
