KELO, the CBS affiliate for Sioux Falls, SD has named Sammi Bjelland (pictured on the left) anchor for its 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. newscast.  Bjelland replaces Angela Kennecke (pictured on the right) who had been the evening anchor for the last 21 years.

The station explained Kennecke’s move in a statement posted to their website saying, “KELO-TV is growing its Back to Business web page and business and consumer reporting. We feel the best way to do that is for Angela to take on a new role as Business editor.”

Bjelland comes to KELO from KEYC the Mankato, MN FOX and CBS affiliate where she was a multimedia journalist.
