It seems that Nexstar’s troubled Harrisburg stationWHTM has shifted some Anchors around and made a new hire.

WHTM has a number of pending lawsuits and complaints lodged against it, maninly from former female talent that works or worked at the station.

Now they have shifted some talent around.

Lineup changes at the station took effect just as the Feb book started.

The weekend news team now features Janel Knight, Mark Hall, Dan Tomaso and Damon Turbitt.

"We believe this ensemble pairing brings the strongest and most experienced team to deliver local news and the most accurate weather forecast every weekend evening to viewers across the Harrisburg, Lancaster, Lebanon and York region,” said WHTM News Director CJ Hoyt via a press release. “Combined, this team has worked at abc27 for more than 20 years. They are passionate about the central Pennsylvania community and are committed to news and weather as an important public service that benefits all those in our viewing area.”

The shift in personnel led to an opening in the weekend morning news team, which WHTM filled with a new hire. Michella Drapac, formerly a morning anchor at WDVM in Hagerstown, Maryland, started with WHTM late last month.
