Melissa Smith is joining KWQC, the NBC affiliate in Davenport, Iowa, as morning co-anchor.
Smith moves to the Quad Cities from Traverse City, Mich., where she is currently the morning anchor at NBC affiliate WPBN.
“Melissa is a leader in and out of the newsroom. She is a strong journalist with a community based philosophy. She’ll fit right in with the KWQC family,” KWQC news director Beth Marsoun said in a statement. “Melissa has a kind way and bright personality.”
Smith will anchor alongside David Nelson and meteorologist Greg Dutra. She replaces Jessica Tighe, who recently joined WDJT in Milwaukee.
