Philly.com reports WCAU morning anchor Aditi Roy, is getting “a national tryout” on NBC News. Roy, co-anchors mornings on the NBC O&O, will work out of NBC’s Los Angeles bureau for the summer. The LA bureau is short-staffed at the moment as correspondent Kristen Welker, also a WCAU alum, has been reporting from the White House, since Savannah Guthrie left the beat to co-anchor the third hour of “Today.”
Welker had a similar tryout last year before joining NBC News last August.
