Speaking of KSTU….

The station has a new main Anchor and they didn’t go far to find her.

Kelly Chapman has been bumped up from weekday morning anchor to weekday afternoon & evening anchor.

Starting next week, Chapman will co-anchor FOX 13’s 4 p.m. newscast with veteran Max Roth, and co-anchor the 5 p.m., 5:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. newscasts with Bob Evans.

“Kelly is a dedicated journalist and an outstanding communicator whose personality shines through the screen,” said FOX 13 news director Marc Sternfield. “She has been an important part of our successful morning newscast and will be a strong addition to our afternoon and evening news.”

“Kelly is not only a great news anchor, she also cares deeply about the community,” said Tim Ermish, FOX 13’s general manager. “Whether she is emceeing fundraisers for local non-profits, joining her co-workers at public outreach events, or helping individuals through FOX 13’s ‘Dream Team’ stories, Kelly is always looking for ways to give back.”

Chapman, a former Miss Utah USA, joined FOX 13 in 2013 as weekend morning anchor after moving back to Utah from California where she held on-air positions at KOVR-TV and KMAX TV in Sacramento.
