WBZ has played musical chairs with their anchors. After eight years on the morning anchor desk, Paula Ebben will be moving to anchor The WBZ News at 5. As a result, current 5 p.m. anchor Kate Merrill will shift to the weekend morning show.
In a move made on the eve of the start of the February ratings book, weekender Kerry Connolly will reprise her role as David Wade’s new co-anchor on The WBZ Morning News. Connolly was a former morning show anchor at the station until 2004, when she was replaced by Paula Ebben.
The changes kick in on January 28th. No word yet on who will be anchoring WBZ’s 10 p.m. newscast on myTV38.
