Melinda Davenport is joining WISN, the ABC affiliate in Milwaukee, as the breaking news anchor for the morning newscast.
“Melinda understands our mission to bring viewers relevant information that impacts their daily lives,” news director Chris Gegg said in a statement. “The ability to clearly deliver breaking news information in our constantly updating world takes experience and talent, and Melinda brings both. She will be a great addition to our morning team.”
It is a move within Hearst for Davenport, who has worked at WMUR in Manchester, N.H., since 2011. She most recently anchored the station’s weekday noon newscast and weekend evening newscasts.
