The announcement was made this morning via internal station memo:
I am very excited to announce we have hired a new morning co-anchor for Fox 4 Rising! Amy Wegmann will join Miriam Zamorano, Jamie Kagol, Angela Melvin and Julian Glover on the morning show beginning Monday, July 7th.
Many of you know Amy, and I am sure you will agree her warm and enthusiastic personality will be an excellent addition to our morning team.
A news release about Amy’s addition will go out later this week. If you receive any questions from outside media or viewers, please direct those to Charlie (WFTX VP/GM).
Amy will be in the building for training on Wednesday and Thursday, so be sure to welcome her to the team!
