For close to ten years, Kirstin Cole was a top-notch reporter at WCBS/Channel 2. She left the station in September 2010 as the station’s consumer reporter. But in recent weeks she began filing reports for WPIX/Channel 11. It is a homecoming of sorts for Cole, as she was a reporter at Channel 11 from 2000 to 2001.
Cole, who joined WCBS in 2001, had two weekend anchoring stints. She was the weekend evening anchor from 2001 to 2003. From 2006 to April 2007, Cole teamed with Cindy Hsu for weekend morning newscasts.
A WPIX spokeswoman tells FishbowlNY that Cole works “occasionally” for them as a “per diem” reporter.
It was just last weekend that WPIX added veteran meteorologist John Marshall for some fill-in work on the evening newscasts. He had a brief tenure at Channel 2 after more than a dozen years on WNBC.
