The station announced the move on its facebook page, “She’s moving back to Florida to be with her husband. We wish her nothing but the best and will miss her every morning on Channel 3 News Today.”

The morning team said goodbye to Coueignoux on this morning’s show. “She made Cleveland TV better,” said Matt Granite. “And Steph is 40 percent of my social life,” he added. Granite then asked anchor John Anderson and meteorologist Hollie Strano to take over for her.

Before coming to WKYC in October 2011, Coueignoux worked at Central Florida News 13. She started her broadcast career at WHDH in Boston.

WKYC Moves John Anderson to Morning News

John Anderson has joined morning meteorologist Hollie Strano on the WKYC morning news.

Anderson, who replaces Chris Tye and Erin Kennedy, told his followers on facebook Saturday night, “Hi Everyone, tonight is my last show on the weekend working with Lynna Lai. Starting Monday, I’m going back to the morning show.”

“For right now, John Anderson and Hollie Strano will be co-hosting the morning show, and, obviously, neither is a stranger to that beat,” Brooke Spectorsky, president and general manager of the Cleveland NBC affiliate told the Cleveland Plain-Dealer. “Going forward, that doesn’t mean it will be permanent. There will be at least one more person added.”

According to the Plain-Dealer WKYC’s 4:30 a.m. show has been trailing morning ratings leader FOX affiliate WJW.

Anderson returned to WKYC in October 2012. He anchored the morning show between 2000 and 2007 before leaving to work at WTXF in Philadelphia.

He’s a forward-thinking manager who expects the best from his team and fights for the resources to bring high-quality newscasts to viewers in Northeast Ohio.”

Veteran Philadelphia Sportscaster Howard Eskin Joining WTXF

Sports anchor Howard Eskin is jumping from NBC O&O WCAU to Fox O&O WTXF in Philadelpia.

Eskin is the longtime host of WCAU’s “Sports Final,” as well as a local radio personality in Philadelphia. The move is a return to WTXF for the sportscaster, who once served as anchor of the station’s 10 p.m. newscast.

“I’ve been incredibly fortunate in my career, having had the opportunity to cover some of the most memorable games and athletes in Philadelphia,” Eskin said. “But, there is nothing like getting a chance to return to FOX 29, where my heart has always been. It’s great to be back.”

Beginning on September 4, Eskin will anchor sports for WTXF’s evening newscasts. John Anderson, who is the station’s current sports anchor, will take on an expanded role at WTXF, moving to reporting and anchoring news.
