Nexstar owned KTAL (Shreveport) announced that Anchor Dan Jovic has joined his Anchor wife Jacque Jovic on the evening news anchor desk.
Jacque and Dan Jovic are co-anchoring NBC 6 News at 5:00, 6:00, and 10 p.m., Monday through Friday.
“I couldn’t be happier to announce this move. Dan has done a superb job in helping to grow the morning show with Stefanie Bryant and Patrick Dennis. Now he will be able to bring his journalistic skill and personal warmth to NBC 6 news in the evening. With this move we are strengthening our commitment to serving the ArkLaTex,” said Mark McKay, VP/GM of KTAL.
Dan and Jacque Jovic came to KTAL in October 2012 from Cleveland, OH, where Dan was a reporter and Jacque was a news anchor. Since coming to the station, Dan has anchored NBC 6 News Today, and Jacque has anchored NBC 6 News at 5:00, 6:00, and 10:00p.
NBC 6 News Director Chris Huston said, “There aren’t very many husband and wife news anchor teams in the country, but the Jovics were an obvious choice to lead NBC 6 News as we continue to bring our viewers local news that matters. Everywhere I go, I find people responding to both their professionalism and warmth. The Jovics have a rare combination in television news, they are both great journalists, but they are also great people.”
