Last October, longtime WBNS anchor Andrea Cambern announced that she would be stepping down from the anchor desk in May. And now the Columbus CBS-affiliate has announced who will be taking her place alongside Jerry Revish, on the station’s main anchor team.
Kristyn Hartman, a general assignment reporter with Chicago’s WBBM for the past seven years, is joining WBNS and will take over for Cambern at the beginning of June.
“Kristyn embodies everything that was important to us in our search for a new anchor,” WBNS president and general manager Tom Griesdorn said, in announcing the move. “An affinity for local news, a desire to impact change in her community, and a personality that will be a leader in our newsroom and a delight for our viewers.”
Before joining WBBM, Hartman anchored the news at WCCB in Charlotte.
“The values of strong journalism, community service, and quality local television have been passions of mine throughout my career,” Hartman said in a statement. “When the opportunity came to join WBNS-10TV, I knew that there are few stations in the country that have the level of commitment to these values that 10TV has. I can’t wait to make central Ohio my new home and continue an amazing legacy.”
