“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.”

Beginning this week, Fogelsong, who joined the station earlier this month and has been anchoring the noon newscast, will take over alongside Clay Miller on the 5, 6 and 11 a.m. newscasts. She replaces Turco, who will move to the noon and 4 p.m. anchor spot.
“These two moves create a commanding level of experience in news anchor teams across every day part,” news director Darrel Lieze-Adams said in a statement. “Our viewers will only benefit from our depth of experience throughout the day.”
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.
“Krista brings 15 years of experience reporting, producing and anchoring,” the station said, announcing the move. “We are very pleased that NBC2 was her station of choice upon returning to the area.”
Citing reliable sources, the Fort Myers News-Press reports that Fogelsong is staying at WBND until the end of the May ratings period, and then she will begin working at WBBH in early June.
Fogelsong’s agent, Mort Meisner, told TVSpy today that he can’t comment about the rumors, but added, “Any announcement should come from the Florida station.”

WBND is in the midst of building an original newscast from scratch and Fogelsong will be the face of it. She has been with the KNBN for 2 1/2 years, where she has served as the NBC-affiliate’s main evening anchor.
WBND’s parent company, Weigel Broadcasting Co., plans to invest more than $2 million in building a news facility for the ABC-affiliate. The station is in the process of hiring a news staff that will include over 30 people.
“It was a tough decision to make because it takes a lot of time and effort to produce a newscast from scratch,” Jeff Guy, WBND’s general manager, told the South Bend Tribune recently, “but we assessed it and decided it was worth doing.”
WBND currently produces an 11-minute 11 p.m. newscast in association with Milwaukee’s WDJT. Fogelsong will begin anchoring this broadcast as the station prepares to launch its own newscast in the spring.
