In March we told you WSVN anchor and reporter Dave Kartunen was seen at WHDH interviewing for the station’s then recently vacated weekend evening anchor post.
Well he was and now it’s official. Dave is swapping stations and moving to WHDH to anchor the weekend evening newscasts!
His last day at WSVN will be June 26th and he’ll be on the air at WHDH sometime in early July.
Dave Kartunen joined WSVN in 2003 from WSAV, the NBC affiliate in Savannah, Georgia.

the memo sent to the troops after the jump
It is with mixed emotions I announce that Dave Kartunen is leaving the Plex. Dave is being promoted to Weekend Evening Anchor at WHDH in Boston. Dave has done an oustanding job since coming to 7 News back in 2003, starting as a reporter and working his way up to Saturday morning anchor. Dave went to college at Boston University, and has family in the area. He is very excited to be returning to New England. We’re thrilled about this new promotion, but sad to see him leave the Plex. But we’ll all see him when he does those snow live shots for us! Dave’s last day is June 26th. Please congratulate Dave!
