Tony Segreto has said his final goodbyes to South Florida, which now leaves a vacancy on the NBC6 news at 6. As many have you have guessed, the “rising star” at WTVJ is going to be given a chance. Joel Connable has been named the the successor of Tony Segreto.
Joel started working at WTVJ in August of 2005. Before moving to Miami, Joel worked as a reporter and anchor at CBS2/KCAL in Los Angeles. Recently, he replaced DeMarco Morgan on the “South Florida Nightly News.” Now, he will anchor along with Julia Yarbough on the News at 6, and along with Jackie Nespral on the “South Florida Nightly News.” The new changes take effect on Monday, January 12th. No one will ever be a “replacement” for Tony Segreto, but Joel is a great choice to “take over” for Tony. Congratulations, Joel. We wish you the best of luck!
