FTVLive was the FIRST to tell you about the Anchor shake up that was going to go down at KTVX in Salt Lake City.

We told you that new News Director George Severson was making a number of moves to try and prop up the station's struggling ratings.

According to an internal email obtained by FTVLive, Severson has completed the changes for the station's morning show with naming of a female anchor.

Good People...

I'm pleased to announce the promotion of Emily Clark as permanent co-anchor of Good Morning Utah. Her new assignment now completes a month-long process of re-organizing our morning show's anchor desk. I have full confidence that the team of Glenn, Emily and Curtis will be a force in the market.

Emily reminded me she started here as an intern many moons ago, went away and had the guts to come back! She's been a vital contributor on our morning show since arriving back at ABC4 and now will help lead our morning team to greatness.

Congratulations Emily - we look forward to years of success with you on GMU!

George B Severson
News Director
