Early this morning WFOR announced they have hired Irika Sargent as the station’s weekday early evening and 11pm co-anchor. Sargent comes from Houston NBC affiliate KPRC where she anchored weekends and reported during weekdays.
In addition to a bachelor of journalism degree, Sargent also holds a Juris Doctorate from Cornell Law School and practiced law for four years at the New York offices of Miami-based international law firm Greenberg Taurig.
“We are excited to welcome Irika Sargent to CBS4,” said Adam Levy, Vice President and General Manager of WFOR/CBS4 and WBFS/myTV33. “Irika will be another key addition to the talented and experienced news team we have here and we look forward to having her partner with Rick, starting in May. We are also fortunate to have Cynthia Demos, a consummate pro who does a great job of handling every assignment that she is given, on our team. Cynthia has given us an experienced and steady hand at the anchor desk during our evening newscasts the past several months and we look forward to having her continue to be a key contributor to our success.”
Look for her début on WFOR in May.
