KNBC Names Robert Kovacik and Former CNN Correspondent Stephanie Elam Weekend Anchors

KNBC, NBC’s owned-and-operated station in Los Angeles, has named new anchors of its weekend 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. broadcasts: Robert Kovacik and Stephanie Elam (pictured).

Kovacik has been the interim anchor of the two evening broadcasts since March. He has been with the station since 2004 and spent the majority of his time at KNBC as the weekday morning anchor.

He will anchor alongside former CNN business correspondent Stephanie Elam, who left the cable network in April after eight years. A California native, Elam and her family relocated to Los Angeles this spring.

“Having two anchors again will bring an exciting new vibrancy and pace to the broadcasts,” KNBC vice president and news director Vickie Burns said in a statement. “Robert and Stephanie are two respected journalists with a terrific on-air presence. We believe they have just the right dynamic to deliver a solid news product and connect with our audience.”
