Anchor changes at WTSP, WZVN…

Just a day after it was announced that Heather Van Nest was leaving WTSP, the station has already named her replacement.

Dion Lim, who joined the Tampa market station this past January, has been named as the new lead female co-anchor. She will anchor the 6:00 and 11:oopm newscasts at the station.

This change has been apparently in the works for sometime, even as Van Nest’s departure from the station came suddenly. Van Nest’s departure announcement was made on Thursday and by Friday, ads for the new lead anchor team of Reginald Roundtree, Dion Lim and meteorologist Jim Van Fleet were already gracing digital billboards around the Tampa Bay area.

Florida News Center has learned that Dion Lim’s replacement on the 5:00 and 5:30pm newscasts has already been named as well. Courtney Robinson joins the station, coming from Fort Myer’s WZVN.

Robinson joined WZVN in July of 2011, as the station’s new lead female co-anchor.

So, who will replace Robinson at WZVN? Are there any more changes coming to WTSP? Stay tuned…
