A spokesperson for the NBC owned station confirms the news, which was first reported by FTVLive, to TunedIn’s Jerry Barmash. “As a matter of course, schedule changes routinely take place at local stations, and this is no different. Both Sibila and Shiba play important roles on our anchor team and will continue to do so,” the spokesperson said.
Russell, who was promoted to evening anchor after Sue Simmons left in 2012, will continue to anchor the 5 p.m. newscast alongside Tom Llamas. She will also anchor the noon newscast, which was previously anchored by Vargas.
