On January 1st, WISH in Indianapolis is losing their affiliation with CBS. Needless to say many staffers have left or are looking to leave the station. Morale is not good.
But, across the street at WTTV, things are looking up. The also ran CW station owned by Tribune will become the CBS station in town and the station is moving fast to fill jobs and get a news operation up and running.
Today, WTTV announced who their new News Anchors will be. WTTV said that Debby Knox and Bob Donaldson will anchor the 5, 6 and 11 p.m. newscasts. They will be joined by meteorologist Chris Wright.
The 5 a.m. newscast will be anchored by Marianne Lyles and Tim Doty. Lindsay Riley will join the team as the morning meteorologist.
“We listened to what local viewers told us they wanted in a news team and a newscast. The team we’ve built for WTTV will bring a high level of local knowledge and experience, as a viewer I can’t wait to see this new team on the air,” said Paul Rennie, vice president and general manager, WXIN & WTTV.
