Kris Pickel Joins WKYC as Evening Co-Anchor

Kris Pickel has been named co-anchor of the 6 and 11 p.m. newscasts at Cleveland’s WKYC, general manager Brooke Spectorsky announced today.

Pickel joins the NBC-affiliate from KOVR in Sacramento, where she is the weekend evening anchor. Beginning in April, she will co-anchor with Russ Mitchell, who joined WKYC from CBS News in January.

In a statement, news director Rita Anderson said it was “imperative” to give Mitchell a co-anchor with strong reporting skills.

“Kris is a skilled and tenacious journalist who is as strong in the field as she is on the anchor desk,” Anderson said.
