WAPT has announced morning anchor Megan West will anchor the 5:00, 6:00 and 10:00 p.m. news.
For the past four years, West has co-anchored the Jackson, MS, ABC affiliate’s morning show.
“No more 1:30 a.m. alarms,” West said in a statement. “For much of the past eight years, I’ve loved being part of the way people in Central Mississippi start their day. Now I want to be the voice they hear as they are ending it.”
She will join co anchor Stephanie Maxwell starting next Monday, March 24.
