WESH in Orlando is adding a morning Anchor, but she is not replacing anyone.... at least not yet.
Current Anchors Jason Guy and Meredith McDonough aren't going anywhere.
Michelle Imperato will anchor with Guy from 7 to 9 a.m. on sister station WKCF-Channel 18, starting June 2, WESH announced Thursday. Imperato is joining the NBC affiliate from KSBW in Monterey, Calif., where she was a morning anchor and reporter.
Imperato will be a contributor to the WESH news from 4:30 to 7 a.m.
McDonough will continue to anchor with Guy from 5 to 7 a.m. on WESH.
"We're just trying to increase our bench strength," said Jim Carter, general manager of WESH and WKCF to the Orlando Sentinel. "We love Meredith. Michelle will be a great addition to our anchor team."
Carter said he was simply building up the team. "We do four and half hours of news between the two stations. That's a lot of news for what's been a few people," he said.
The change will free up McDonough to do reporting projects.
