Denise Dufala Named Evening Co-Anchor at WOIO


By Merrill Knox Comment

Cleveland CBS-affiliate WOIO has named an evening co-anchor for newly-hired Romona Robinson: Denise Dufala.

Robinson’s WOIO hire was announced last week. She and Dufala will anchor the 6 and 11 p.m. newscasts beginning tomorrow evening, the Cleveland Plain-Dealer reports.

Robinson parted ways with rival WKYC, Cleveland’s NBC-affiliate, in December after failing to come to an agreement with station management over a new contract. Robinson’s hire at WOIO was coupled with the news that anchors Sharon Reed and Lynna Lai would both be leaving the station.
