Jim Watkins Anchoring at News 12 Westchester

Nine months after parting ways with New York City CW-affiliate WPIX, Jim Watkins is back behind the anchor desk.

Watkins began as an anchor this week at News 12 Westchester, our sister site FishbowlNY reports. Watkins has been freelancing with the station for several months, and with the recent departure of 5 p.m. anchor Brian Conybeare, his role has increased.

Conybeare leaves News 12 Westchester for a role in New York governor Andrew Cuomo‘s office. A spokesperson for the station told FishbowlNY that a permanent replacement for Conybeare has not been named.
