THIS JUST IN: Monica Robins Takes WKYC 7 PM Co-Anchor Slot

This one was just posted by WKYC/3 "Director's Cut" blogger Frank Macek:

The Cleveland NBC affiliate is tapping "Channel 3 News" health reporter Monica Robins as the new co-anchor of the station's 7 PM newscast. Robins will join incumbent 7 PM anchor Eric Mansfield.

The opening is due to the exit of current 7 PM co-anchor Carole Sullivan. As expected, she'll be leaving Cleveland to follow her husband Mike to San Diego, where he's joining the coaching staff of the NFL's San Diego Chargers. The couple had returned to Cleveland earlier, after Mike Sullivan took a job on the Browns' coaching staff.

The "Director's Cut" blog reports that Sullivan's last day alongside Eric Mansfield is April 3rd, and Robins starts on the 7 PM show the following Monday, April 6th.

The article says Robins is expected to continue not only doing health-related reporting for WKYC, but also as anchor of the station's noon news show.

The 7 PM edition of "Channel 3 News" is the only WKYC evening newscast with two primary Romona Robinson has been solo-anchoring the 6 PM and 11 PM shows since the departure of former co-anchor Tim White...

as long as Eric Mansfield isn't going anywhere, I'm happy.

Love that guy!
