Antwan Lewis to Co-Anchor Weekend Evening Newscasts at WNYW

Antwan Lewis has been named weekend evening co-anchor at New York City Fox O&O WNYW. Beginning May 18, Lewis will co-anchor the 6 and 10 p.m. weekend newscasts alongside Christina Park.

Lewis joined WNYW in 2010 as a general assignment reporter. Since January, he has anchored the station’s early morning newscast alongside Juliet Huddy. Lewis has also worked at WGN in Chicago and KTVK in Phoenix.

WNYW will rotate reporters and anchors to fill in on the early morning newscast until a new co-anchor is named.

After Heather Nauert’s Exit, Juliet Huddy Filling In on WNYW’s ‘Good Day Wakeup’

A change on the early morning newscast at New York City Fox O&O WNYW: Since last Monday, Juliet Huddy has been filling in at the anchor desk alongside Steve Lacy from 4:30 to 7 a.m.

Heather Nauert, who has anchored “Good Day Wakeup” since 2009, has left WNYW. Station sources say WNYW is looking at both internal and external candidates, including Huddy, to anchor the early morning show. The station is having on-air tryouts for the position, according to sources.

Huddy is the former host of “The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet,” a syndicated morning show that she helmed alongside Mike Jerrick. After the show was cancelled in 2009, Huddy returned to Fox News Channel, where she is a frequent contributor to “The O’Reilly Factor.”

A WNYW spokesperson was not immediately available for comment.
