KNXV Moves One Anchor, Adds Two and Subtracts an Assistant ND

knxv logo_304x200Phoenix ABC affiliate KNXV is making moves in front of and behind the camera.

The Scripps owned station is adding Danielle Lerner and Nick Ciletti as anchors while assistant news director Dan Wilson is heading to West Palm Beach to take over as interim news director for Scripps’ NBC affiliate WPTV.

KNXV news director Pat Costello told TVSpy Lerner will join the station in mid-September replacing Stephanie Hockridge on weekends. Hockridge has already moved to weekday co-anchor on the 5:00 and 6:00 p.m. after the station expanded its 6:00 p.m. show to an hour.  The station is adding Ciletti as co-anchor to the previously solo anchored weekend morning shows.

WPTV told TVSpy, “We are fortunate to have Dan as our Interim News Director. He has solid news experience and is an outstanding newsroom leader. We are in the process of speaking to candidates for the full-time news director position and the job is currently posted on our website.”

Lerner comes to KNXV from KVOA in Tucson where she is a morning anchor. Ciletti comes to KNXV from WBBH in Fort Myers, FL.

Barkley, who was at the station to be a guest of the “Sports Sunday” show airing after the news, quickly steered the broadcast and all conversation towards himself, holding forth on such subjects as his weight, his schedule for manicures and pedicures and his fond childhood memories of his grandmother’s vast supply of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer.

He interrupted Randy Collins‘ weather cast by asking when the rain was going to stop and then proceeded to inquire about the weather where he lives (Scottsdale) and what the weather would be like for one of his favorite sports (golf). Read more
