Milwaukee ABC affiliate WISN is shuffling its anchor lineup heading into the Fall, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel‘s Duane Dudek reports.

Beginning August 12, Jason Newton (pictured) will move from the 5 p.m. anchor desk to the morning anchor desk. He joins the current morning anchors Patrick Paolantonio and Marianne Lyles on the newscast; the third morning anchor, Portia Young, will shift to weekend mornings and report during the week.

Replacing Newton at 5 p.m. will be Craig McKee, who will continue in his role as 6 and 10 p.m. co-anchor. McKee will anchor alongside Toya Washington, according to Dudek.

WISN has also named Joyce Garbaciak the Sunday evening anchor. She will helm the 10 p.m. newscast alongside Toni Valliere, who joins the station next month, and recently-hired meteorologist Chris Gloninger.
