Joncich comes from WOIO in Cleveland, where he has been an anchor for the past six years. At KLAS, he replaces Gary Waddell, who is retiring. Joncich will anchor the noon, 4 and 4:30 p.m. newscasts, as well as reporting for the 5 and 6 p.m. newscasts.
“I am honored and humbled, to not replace Gary, because I know no one can, but to step in and try to pick up where he left off in continuing the 8 News NOW tradition,” Joncich said in a statement. “I’m going to make it my number one priority to earn your trust.”
