Bumped Up in Louisville

Longtime WHAS (Louisville) Anchor Melissa Swan is losing her 11PM Anchor gig to Renee Murphy (pictured).

The station announced Monday that it has bumped Murphy up to the late Anchor gig and that Swan's role is changing.  

WHAS News Director David Seals says that Swan, who has been at WHAS for 30 years, will continue anchoring the 5 and 6 p.m. newscasts and she will focus on the station's "On Your Side" stories, which focus on being an advocate for viewers.

Murphy will continue leading the station's iTeam investigative unit as well as anchoring the 5:30 p.m. newscast.

"We are fortunate that in Renee, we have the perfect journalist right in our newsroom with the integrity and drive to co-anchor our 11 p.m. newscast," said GM Linda Danna.

The change takes place on March 23rd.
