WPTV, one of the country’s top stations, is making some huge changes to their main anchor team. Laurel Sauer who’s anchored the station’s main newscasts with Jim Sackett for 18+ years will be replaced at 11pm by 5pm anchor Kelley Dunn. However, Sauer and Sackett will still anchor the 6pm newscast together. She will also co-anchor the one hour midday newscast.
Kelley Dunn joined WPTV in 1986, a year after she graduated from the University of Florida, and has been there since, only station she’s ever worked at in fact.
WPEC and WPBF have been challenging WPTV at 11pm for sometime occasionally taking the top stop in that time spot and some speculate this is the reason for the changes.
Additionally veteran reporter and anchor Tim Malloy will join Shannon Cake at 5:30pm.
Investigative reporter Miranda Khan who joined WPTV in 2004 and assistant news director Larry Ganns have left the station.
