Anchor desk changes at WISN-TV for McKee, Garbaciak, Newton
Whenever you move a piece on a game board, you change the playing field.
So it is with the shuffling of news anchors at WISN-TV (Channel 12).
As previously noted, 5 p.m. anchor and evening reporter Jason Newton will be moving to "12 News This Morning" newscast, joining Patrick Paolantonio, Marianne Lyles, Sally Severson and Matt Saleme.
Today, WISN announced Craig McKee, 6 and 10 p.m. co-anchor with Kathy Mykleby, also will replace Newton as co-anchor of the 5 p.m. newscast with Toya Washington.
And the station announced an expanded role for local TV news veteran Joyce Garbaciak, who will return to the anchor desk on Sundays starting in September.
She will co-anchor the Sunday 10 p.m. newscast with new weekend anchor Toni Valliere, who joins the station Aug. 19, and new meteorologist Chris Gloninger.
Garbaciak joined WISN as a special correspondent in 2006 after 17 years as a reporter and anchor at WITI-TV (Channel 6).
And Portia Young will work as weekend morning anchor and a reporter during the week.
