Preparing to Anchor WKYC’s 7 p.m. Newscast, Robin Swoboda Says ‘Things Have Gone Full Circle’

Robin Swoboda, who has been a familiar face to viewers in northeastern Ohio for the better part of two decades, is set to begin a new phase in her career as co-anchor of WKYC‘s 7 p.m. newscast.

Swoboda will make her WKYC debut, alongside Chris Tye (right), on Monday.

For Swoboda, who hosted a daytime lifestyle show on rival station WJW for the past four years, the move represents a return to where she began her TV career in Cleveland: as an anchor and reporter for the evening news.

“It does feel like things have gone full circle,” Swoboda told The Plain Dealer recently. “When I started out, I knew I wanted to be an anchor-reporter. I branched out and tried this and tried that… but my first love is news. And at this stage of my career, this is it.” Read more

Veteran TV Personality Robin Swoboda Joins Cleveland’s WKYC

Robin Swoboda, whose eponymous daytime talk show on WJW was cancelled in January, has landed at WKYC, where she’ll anchor the 7 p.m. newscast.

Swoboda has been a popular figure in the Cleveland area over the past couple of decades years.  Before launching “The Robin Swoboda Show” on WJW, Swoboda did multiple stints with the Fox-affiliate, including anchoring the station’s 6 p.m. newscast in the late 90s.  She also spent time at WEWS, where she co-hosted the ABC-affiliate’s “Morning Exchange.”

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it all,” Swoboda said, “from local shows to network programming to the ‘Morning Exchange.’ But my first love has always been news, and I feel that’s where my strongest contributions will be. I’m truly excited to join the news team at WKYC.”

WKYC, an NBC-affiliate, says the addition of Swoboda will allow the station to deploy its news team more effectively.  Read more
