WTTG has officially promoted Tony Perkins and Wisdom Martin to morning anchor positions, the Washington, DC Fox O&O announced today.
Perkins will co-anchor from 7 to 10 a.m. alongside Allison Seymour, while Martin will co-anchor from 4:30 to 7 a.m. with Sarah Simmons. Both Perkins and Martin have held these roles on a temporary basis since earlier this year; Perkins replaced Steve Chenevey in January, while Martin replaced Gurvir Dhindsa in March.
“We are pleased to welcome Tony and Wisdom into these new roles on our FOX 5 morning newscasts,” WTTG vice president and news director Phil Metlin said in a statement. “They are both seasoned journalists, who are widely respected in this market.”
