Lynna Lai Named Weekend Anchor at WKYC

Lynna Lai is joining Cleveland’s WKYC as the weekend anchor, according to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer.

Lai was most recently an anchor at rival WOIO, the Cleveland CBS-affiliate. The station did not renew her contract after former WKYC anchor Romona Robinson was hired in January.

She replaces Eric Mansfield, who is leaving the station for a job at Kent State University. Her first day will be April 16.

“Sometimes, anchors are perceived as being out of touch with the community, for never setting foot outside the station,” she said in a statement. “But Channel 3 is committed to hiring anchors who are reporters first, so I think this is a great fit.”
