Leon Bibb No Longer Anchoring WEWS 6 p.m. News

Leon Bibb is no longer the anchor of the WEWS 6 p.m. newscast, the Cleveland Plain-Dealer reports.

Bibb joined the Cleveland ABC-affiliate in 1995 and has been co-anchor of the 6 p.m. newscast since 2010. He will continue to anchor the station’s noon newscast, as well as its Sunday morning show, “Kaleidoscope.” He will also take over two new programs, “Leon Bibb’s Ohio” and “Leon Bibb’s Perspective.”

“Leon is still a very vital part of what we have here,” WEWS vice president and general manager Sam Rosenwasser told the Plain-Dealer. “We want to put a spotlight on what he has.”

Bibb’s replacement at 6 p.m. is Chris Flanagan, who also co-anchors the 11 p.m. newscast. He took over alongside Lee Jordan on Monday.
