WKYT Announces Anchor Change and New Reporter

WKYT, Gray Television’s Lexington, KY, CBS affiliate, has announced an anchor change on its 4:00 p.m. newscast and the addition of a reporter.

Jennifer Palumbo (pictured left) has added the WKYT 4:00 p.m. news to her anchor duties. Palumbo already anchors the 10:00 p.m. news on Sinclair’s FOX affiliate WDKY. Palumbo replaces Stacy Ellison (pictured right) who is leaving the station Friday.

“I know Jennifer will do an outstanding job anchoring the 4 p.m., making an even greater contribution to the newsroom and reinforcing the strong partnership between WKYT and WDKY by being an important part of both stations,” said WKYT news director Robert Thomas.

Palumbo started her career at WYMT in Hazard, KY, in 1994. According to the station, Ellison is returning to Jacksonville, FL, where she lived before her move to Lexington in 2006.

The station also announced Whitney Wetzel has joined the station as reporter. Wetzel comes to WKYT from WDTV in Bridgeport, WV.
