WHO’s Jannay Towne Tapped for Weekend Mornings

Jannay Towne has been promoted to weekend morning anchor at WHO, the NBC-affiliate in Des Moines.

In her new role, Towne will continue reporting for the 5, 6 and 10 p.m. newscasts. She will debut alongside co-anchor Dan Winters this weekend.

“She’s one of those people that gets the job done every day with a smile and we’re pleased to see her role expand,” WHO news director Rod Peterson said in a statement.

Towne, who has been at WHO for seven years, replaces Elizabeth Klinge as the weekend morning anchor. Klinge left the station earlier this month to pursue a business venture with her husband.
