Boston CBS owned station WBZ is adding Kathryn Hauser (pictured left) and meteorologist Danielle Niles (right) to the station’s weekday morning and noon newscasts.
“Kathryn is an outstanding journalist with deep connections to the New England region, and will be a great addition to the ‘BZ News team,” Mark Lund, president and GM of WBZ said in a statement. “Danielle’s local roots, expertise as a meteorologist, and warm on-air presentation will be perfect for the morning newscast.”
Lund foreshadowed more changes to come by adding, “These changes will also give us the opportunity to make additional anchor reassignments that will allow us to bolster our enterprise and investigative reporting, content development, and commitment to the local community.”

Niles moves over from the weekend mornings at WBZ. She came the station in 2013 from New England Cable News. Before that she was a forecaster at Weather Services international in Andover, MA.
