In Lincoln, KOLN-KGIN has tapped Vanessa Flowers to co-anchor its 5, 6, and 10 p.m. newscasts.

Flowers, who has been with the joint CBS-affiliate since November 2010, will work alongside current anchor John Fortney, effectively replacing Serese Cole, who left the station earlier this summer to join WOWT in Omaha.

Flowers has anchored KOLN-KGIN’s “Nebraska Central News“–a 9 p.m. newscast that airs on the stations’ MyTV digital subchannel–since its debut last December.

“This is a great opportunity to continue to serve Nebraska viewers,” she said of her move to 5, 6, and 10, which will bring her from Grand Island to Lincoln. “I get to work with the same great team of people, but in a different city.”

Sara Geake, who has worked as a reporter for KGIN since 2006, replaces Flowers as “NCN” anchor.
