The Cincinnati Enquirer breaks down the new lineups:
Toti, weekend anchor since 1997, will co-anchor the 4 p.m. weekday news starting Monday with Brad Johansen, who leaves sports after 18 years. They replace anchor Kit Andrews, who quit in July after 33 years.
The Johansen-Toti team gives Channel 12 two high-profile anchors in the competitive 4-5 p.m. time slot against Ellen DeGeneres’ “Ellen,” which moved to WLWT-TV (Channel 5) on Monday, and the premiere of the hybrid local/national “The NOW Cincinnati” newscast, hosted by Cincinnati native Julie Dolan on WCPO-TV (Channel 9).
In another change, viewers will see Channel 12′s primary anchor team – Rob Braun and Dierking – for the entire 5-6:30 p.m. evening news, and again at 11 p.m. as usual. Jackson had anchored at 5:30 p.m. with Andrews until she left.
More announcements could come from the station Thursday, including where anchor Curtis Jackson goes after the shuffle.
