Wendy Suares Joins KOKH as Morning Anchor

KOKH has been busy adding to its on-air roster. We reported earlier today the Oklahoma City FOX affiliate is bringing on two new reporters in the next couple of weeks. The station has also confirmed Wendy Suares will be the new morning co-anchor.

“We’re thrilled to have Wendy join the Fox 25 Morning News team,” KOKH news director Adam Pursch told TVSpy. “She’s a tremendous talent, and she understands what our viewers expect us to provide every morning.”

Suares will replace Liz Dueweke who left the station for KOMO in Seattle. Suares was a victim of the layoffs that hit Little Rock’s KARK and sister station KLRT after KARK’s owner, Nexstar, took over management of KLRT in December. Read more

Layoffs Hit Little Rock’s KLRT and KARK

Nearly 30 employees have been laid off from both Nexstar managed Little Rock stations, KLRT and KARK, as part of a move to consolidate the two stations, according to Arkansas Business.

The layoffs come less than a month after Mission Broadcasting completed the purchase of FOX affiliate KLRT from Newport Television. Soon after the deal went through, Nexstar, who signed an outside services agreement with Mission, removed the station’s GM and promised more changes to come.

Arkansas Business quotes a KLRT insider who said at least 20 of the layoffs came from KLRT, including news director Ed Trauschke and sports anchor David Raath.  Another source said KARK, the Little Rock NBC affiliate, saw eight employees let go including on-air talent Wendy Suares, Adam Rodriguez and Jonathan Athens.

A Nexstar spokesperson told TVSpy the company does not comment on personnel matters.
