WUSA Adds Jan Jeffcoat as Anchor

WUSA has announced Jan Jeffcoat will join the Washington, D.C. CBS affiliate as co-anchor for the evening news.

“I’m excited to be coming home to family and the place where my husband grew up,” Jeffcoat said in a statement. “I’m also honored to join WUSA 9, one of the premier local television stations in the country!”

Jeffcoat left Chicago’s WFLD last year to co-host the Scripps nationally syndicated talk/news show “The List.”

She will co-anchor the station’s 5:00, 7:00 and 11:00 p.m. news alongside Derek McGinty. Her first day on air will be Sunday, September 22, the night the station airs the Emmy Awards.
