KDFW Reporter Peter Daut Joins WSOC-WAXN

Peter Daut, a reporter at KDFW, is leaving Dallas for a position as morning anchor at WSOC-WAXN in Charlotte.

Daut, who has been at KDFW since 2008, will begin at WSOC-WAXN in early March. He will be paired with Allison Latos to helm the 4:30 to 7 a.m. newscast on WSOC and the 7 to 9 a.m. newscast on WAXN. The shuffle is an expansion of Latos’ role at the Cox duopoly — she currently anchors the 4:30 to 7 a.m. newscast with Scott Wickersham.

Wickersham will join Natalie Pasquarella as co-anchor of the 5:30 p.m. WSOC newscast. He will also continue to provide investigative reporting for the station.

On the Move, 4/19/11

Allison Latos joins Charlotte’s WSOC-WAXN as an anchor-reporter. Latos previously worked for Cox’s WTOV in Steubenville, OH, where she anchored the noon, 5, and 6 p.m. newscasts.

Reporter Kathryn Burcham moves from Dayton’s WHIO to Charlotte’s WSOC-WAXN. During her time with WHIO, Burcham won a Murrow Award for investigative reporting.

Jane Slater joins Dallas’s WFAA after a stint with crosstown rival KTVT. She will deliver traffic reports for WFAA’s 5 and 6 p.m. newscasts.

Reporter Alyssa Chin is now a member of the KKTV news team. She joined the Colorado Springs CBS-affiliate last month after working for KIFI in Pocatello, ID.

WTOV Unveils 90-Minute Evening News Block

WTOV, an NBC-affiliate serving the Ohio Valley, debuted a new, 90-minute evening news block yesterday, from 5 to 6:30 p.m.

For the past 15 years, WTOV has run “Seinfeld” between 30-minute newscasts at 5 and 6 p.m. but now the station has decided to move in a new direction, offering local news instead of syndicated content in the timeslot.

“Through research, News9 viewers told us they want more news,” said Tim McCoy, vice president and general manager of WTOV (channel 9). “It only made sense to expand our newscast.”

Eric Minor and Allison Latos will be at the anchor desk from 5-5:30 and 6-6:30 p.m., while Natalie Herbick will join Minor from 5:30-6. Chief meteorologist Kevin Carter will provide weather updates throughout the 90-minute news block.
