Mike Brooks Named Evening Anchor at KOKH

Mike Brooks is returning to his home state to join KOKH, the Fox-affiliate in Oklahoma City, as evening anchor.

“This will be a great opportunity to return to my home state and my old friends,” Brooks told TVSpy via email. “They have a great group of journalists at KOKH, a terrific news director, and I look forward to joining the team.”

Brooks was most recently a freelance anchor at WFTX in Fort Myers. Prior to that, he was morning anchor at WGCL in Atlanta. Brooks, who signed off from WFTX on Friday, will be anchoring KOKH’s 9 and 10 p.m. newscasts alongside Jamie Cerreta.

Morning Anchor Lisa Spooner Leaving WFTX

Morning anchor Lisa Spooner is leaving WFTX, the Fox-affiliate in Fort Myers, according to the News-Press.

Spooner, who joined WFTX in 2011, will anchor her last newscast this Wednesday.

“It was a very tough decision to leave Fox4,” Spooner said. “I love the people here and I will miss working with them. You won’t … find a friendlier newsroom who genuinely cares about each other and wants to see their co-workers succeed … both personally and professionally.”

The News-Press reports Spooner will be moving to another television station outside of the Fort Myers market. On WFTX, weekend anchor Mike Brooks will fill in on the morning newscast until a permanent replacement is named.
