Longtime Providence anchor Gene Valicenti has been removed from his usual spot on the 11 p.m. broadcast on NBC 10.
According to GoLocalProv, former Fox25er Dan Jaehnig has been promoted from 7p.m. anchor to co-anchor of the station’s flagship broadcast at 11.
Valicenti told TVSpy today that, “WJAR remains my home, and I want the best for the station I’ve been with for 20 years, We’ve had anchor combos switched before. I don’t know if it rises to a ‘shake-up’ since I still have a full plate, and a lot of work to do.”
The veteran anchor will still continue to solo anchor the station’s 5:30 broadcast, as well as co-anchor at 6. He also told TVSpy that he may be developing a franchise piece, similar to what Jonathan Hall had planned after being pulled from Today in New England.
