John Discepolo Set to Join WPEC in West Palm Beach

John Discepolo begins next week as the primary anchor at WPEC, the CBS affiliate in West Palm Beach.

“This is an incredible opportunity that came my way, and one that I could not pass up,” Discepolo told TVSpy.

Discepolo comes from KOMO, the ABC affiliate in Seattle, where he has been a weekend anchor and weekday reporter since 2010. Prior to his time in Seattle, Discepolo also worked at WCBS and WNYW in New York and KDFW in Dallas.

At WPEC, Discepolo will anchor the 6 and 11 p.m. newscasts alongside Liz Quirantes. His first broadcast will be September 24.

KOMO has not yet announced who Discepolo’s replacement will be.
