Former WNYW Reporter Anne Craig Gets New Haven Promotion

Anne Craig can go from silly to serious on a drop of a dime. Those attributes will serve her well with a promotion to morning anchor at WTNH in New Haven. Craig, as we reported in September, joined the ABC affiliate as a weekend anchor and weekday reporter.

“It’s always been a dream of mine to be a morning show anchor,” Craig admits to FishbowlNY.

Craig is a co-anchor of Good Morning Connecticut, which runs from 5 a.m. to 7 a.m., and on WCTX, the MyTV affiliate, from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m.  

Good news for Craig’s numerous fans from her eight years at WNYW/Channel 5. The entire three hours are streamed live on wtnh.com.  

“We didn’t have to look far to find our new morning co-anchor for Good Morning Connecticut. We are always excited to promote from within, and Anne’s time on Good Morning Connecticut Weekend showed us that she could transition nicely to weekday mornings,” said Erik Schrader, News Director of WTNH News 8. “Anne is an excellent journalist and a great addition to the Good Morning Connecticut team.”
