Wichita’s KSN Hires Two Anchors, Expands Newscasts

Wichita NBC-affiliate KSN is making some changes for 2012: the station has hired two anchors and will launch two new newscasts next year.

The station has hired anchor Katie Taube (pictured) from KSFY in Sioux Falls. Taube will helm the 9 p.m. newscast KSN will produce for Fox-affiliate KSAS — which was the subject of a recent lawsuit in the market — starting next year.

Also joining the station is Mary-Rachel Redman, who will be the weekend sports anchor. She joins KSN from KOCO in Oklahoma City.

Beginning January 15, KSN will add a 5 p.m. Sunday evening newscast, with anchor Aileen Simborio and meteorologist Mark Bogner, to the programming lineup.  The station will also add an extra half-hour to the morning newscasts beginning January 9. Read more

KSN Settles on New 10 p.m. Newscast Team

Witchita’s KSN has been searching for a solution to boost ratings on its 10 p.m. newscast since February, when the NBC affiliate announced the replacement of its veteran anchor team.

Last night, KSN shifted Brooke Martin, J.D. Rudd, and Jamison Coyle — currently the station’s weekend anchor team — to the 10 p.m. broadcast, officially replacing veteran anchors Stephanie Bergmann, John Snyder, and Dave Freeman.

According to Carrie Rengers of The Witchita Eagle, KSN’s interim director of marketing Darrin Fullerton said his station’s staff is very versatile, allowing him to “continue to take advantage of the talent we have in house.” Fullerton said other changes in the direction of the newscast are also in the pipeline for the 10 p.m. hour.

Bergmann, Snyder, and Freeman will still anchor the 6 p.m. newscast on KSN. Aileen Simborio and meteorologist Mark Bogner will take over the weekend anchor spots.
