WTNH Names New Morning, Evening Anchors

ali reed wtnhHartford ABC affiliate WTNH is formally naming two new anchors: Anne Craig is the new evening co-anchor and Ali Reed (pictured) is the new morning co-anchor.

Since her return, she has been filling in on the evening newscast, which was left without a co-anchor when Sonia Baghdady left the station. Reed, previously a reporter at WTNH, filled in on the morning newscast while Craig was on maternity leave.

“We didn’t have to look far to find our two new co-anchors. Their new assignments will allow us to better serve the ever changing needs of our audience,”  WTNH news director Al Carl said in a statement. “Anne’s time on the mornings showed us she would transition nicely to weeknights, and Ali is an excellent journalist who has already made herself a valuable member of the Good Morning Connecticut team.”
