Lexington CBS affiliate WKYT will debut weekend morning newscasts on Saturday.
“We already produce the most morning news during the week so it made perfect sense for us to look at bringing our morning news commitment to weekends,” general manager Chris Mossman, who joined the station last month, said in a statement.
The newscasts will air from 6 to 8 a.m. on Saturday and from 8 to 9 a.m. on Sunday. Weekend evening anchor Elizabeth Dorsett (pictured) and meteorologist Keri Hall will helm the newscasts. Beginning in December, general assignment reporter Brittany Pelletz will begin anchoring the weekend evening newscasts.
