Madison’s WISC Juggles Evening Anchor Lineup

WISC, the CBS-affiliate in Madison, is making some changes to the evening talent lineup to allow veteran anchor Susan Siman (pictured) more time with her family.

Effective today, Siman, who currently anchors the 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. newscasts with Mark Koehn, will hand over the 6 p.m. reigns to Sarah Carlson and Eric Franke. Siman will contribute to the newscast as a reporter, and she and Koehn will continue to anchor the 5 p.m. newscast.

“Sometimes, you have to make minor adjustments in your life to make everything else work,” Siman, who has a son in middle school, said in a statement. “That’s what I’m doing.”

Carlson and Franke will continue to anchor the 10 p.m. broadcast. “I’m thrilled we could find a solution that works for Susan, Sarah and our viewers,” news director Colin Benedict said.

Madison’s WISC Catches Up with Its Former Sports Anchor Curt Menefee at the Super Bowl

“This is a long way away from where I came from,” Fox Sports NFL host Curt Menefee told WISC’s Mark Koehn last week, reflecting on his time as a weekend sports anchor for the Madison CBS-affiliate.

Menefee worked for WISC in the late 80s before moving on to New York Fox-affiliate WNYW and eventually becoming the host of “Fox NFL Sunday.” WISC caught up with Menefee as he prepared to anchor Fox’s Super Bowl coverage on Sunday.
