Kerry Barrett, a reporter at Philadelphia Fox O&O WTXF, has been named the station’s evening co-anchor.
Although Barrett has been filling in on the 5, 6 and 10 p.m. newscasts alongside Thomas Drayton since last fall, WTXF news director Steve Schwaid officially announced the promotion today.
“Kerry’s reporting skills demonstrate a genuine connection to our viewers and a unique understanding of the issues facing residents in the Delaware Valley,” Schwaid said. “We are excited to have her in this increased role at our station.”
Barrett joined WTXF in 2010. Her appointment to evening anchor is effective immediately.
