The announcement is the most recent talent shuffle at the Cleveland NBC-affiliate. After longtime anchor Mark Nolan decided to leave the station, 7 p.m. anchor Chris Tye was announced as Nolan’s replacement on the morning newscast.

“He’s smart, high-energy, quick-witted, innovative, creative and an experienced reporter, and all those things will serve him well as he moves to the mornings,” WKYC news director Rita Andolsen told the Plain-Dealer.
“After 18 years here at WKYC, I’m allowing my contract to run out and moving on,” Nolan told TVSpy in an email.
Nolan, who has been part of the WKYC morning newscast since 2007, co-anchors alongside Erin Kennedy. The date of his last broadcast is undetermined, but he says it will be before March 14, which is the last day of his contract.
Although he declined to say what his next step will be, Nolan said he will be doing some short-term radio work after he leaves WKYC.
“She’ll bring a fresh perspective to Cleveland mornings,” WKYC news director Rita Andolsen said, discussing the move with the station’s “Director’s Cut” blog. “We know that early newscasts are becoming even more important as people organize and begin their busy days, and we’re thrilled to have Erin’s help in creating an even more dynamic show. Having deeper resources at the anchor desk will give us increased flexibility to cover breaking news and weather.”
