WISC, the CBS-affiliate in Madison, is making some changes to the evening talent lineup to allow veteran anchor Susan Siman (pictured) more time with her family.
Effective today, Siman, who currently anchors the 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. newscasts with Mark Koehn, will hand over the 6 p.m. reigns to Sarah Carlson and Eric Franke. Siman will contribute to the newscast as a reporter, and she and Koehn will continue to anchor the 5 p.m. newscast.
“Sometimes, you have to make minor adjustments in your life to make everything else work,” Siman, who has a son in middle school, said in a statement. “That’s what I’m doing.”
Carlson and Franke will continue to anchor the 10 p.m. broadcast. “I’m thrilled we could find a solution that works for Susan, Sarah and our viewers,” news director Colin Benedict said.
