Lisa Bell, a former morning anchor at Central Florida News 13, is joining Orlando CBS-affiliate WKMG in January.

The Orlando Sentinel reports Bell, who left Central Florida News 13 in July after she was replaced on the morning newscast by Marla Weech, had to complete her contract with the regional cable channel before signing on with another station.

“She will report for the 5, 6 and 7 p.m. news and fill is as anchor wherever we need her,” WKMG general manager Skip Valet said. “She is a familiar face who has become a trusted source of news in our community.”
