After Leaving WHDH, Frances Rivera to Join… WPIX

Yesterday we reported that anchor Frances Rivera was leaving Boston’s WHDH for a job in New York.  Now we can report that the job is with WPIX.

A WPIX spokesperson confirmed to TVSpy this morning that Rivera is set to join the Tribune-owned station at the end of August. She will join Sukanya Krishnan at the morning anchor desk, replacing Chris Burrous, who moved to KTLA this spring.

“Frances’ experience and talent will be great assets to our award-winning morning newscast,” the spokesperson told TVSpy, “we’re looking forward to having her join the team later this summer.”

An official announcement is expected later this month once the station has worked out Rivera’s start date. In the meantime, Laurie Dhue, who has been filling in since Burrous’s departure, will continue co-anchoring the morning newscast with Krishnan.
