Dardis joins WLWT from KOMO, the ABC-affiliate in Seattle. He will start at WLWT in April.
“The minute I walked into WLWT, it felt like home,” Dardis said in a statement.
Dardis will co-anchor the 5 p.m. newscast with Sheree Paolello, who has been anchoring solo since Jack Atherton stepped away from the anchor desk to focus on political reporting earlier this month. Dardis will also report for the 11 p.m. newscast.
