Daniels first joined the Hartford CBS-affiliate in 2005, working as a general assignment reporter before becoming a weekend anchor in 2008. She left in 2010 for a reporting job at WGCL (both WFSB and WGCL are owned by Meredith).
Daniels had been filling in at the WGCL anchor desk recently but she says that the offer of a full-time anchor spot is what persuaded her to return to WFSB.
“I’m thrilled to be back,” Daniels told TVSpy today via email. “I’m from NYC so after spending two years in the South I realized I wanted to be closer to my family and friends. Plus, as often as I anchored at CBS Atlanta (which was the last 5 months) Channel 3 offered a full-time anchor job. It’s nice to come back to a dominant number one station and be closer to home.”
“Hena Daniels is back on Channel 3, and if feels like she never left!” WFSB senior producer Jamie Calli Mascia tweeted recently.
