Kim Chappell Joins WBND as Evening Co-Anchor

Kim Chappell begins next month at WBND, the ABC affiliate in South Bend. She will anchor the station’s evening newscasts alongside Brian Dorman.

Chappell comes to WBND from WTVF in Nashville, where she used her maiden name, Kim Gebbia. She has previously worked for WXII in Winston-Salem and WECT in Wilmington, N.C.

“Kim has spent her career digging up stories that impact the communities where people live,” news director Aaron Ramey said in a statement. “She has a passion for one-on-one interaction with the folks who are affected by the news. I think that shows in her compassionate approach to story-telling.”

Chappell replaces Krista Fogelsong, who left WBND for WBBH in May.

Brian Dorman, Emily Pritchard Promoted at WBND

In the wake of Krista Fogelsong‘s departure from WBND, the South Bend ABC-affiliate is shuffling its anchor lineup.

Weekend anchor Brian Dorman will take over as evening anchor until a replacement for Fogelsong is named. When the station names someone permanent for the 6, 7 and 11 p.m. newscasts, Dorman will take over as morning co-anchor alongside Keitha Nelson.

Multimedia journalist Emily Pritchard will be promoted to the weekend anchor desk beginning Saturday.

“Brian and Emily are a pair of journalists who have worked tirelessly over the past 18 months and are very deserving of these promotions,” WBND news director Aaron Ramey told TVSpy in an email.
