Nelson, who produces and co-anchors the 5 p.m. newscast on WDAY, will anchor the 6 and 9 p.m. newscasts for Fox affiliate KVRR. He replaces Austen Schauer, who is leaving the station for a job at Park Christian School in Moorhead.
“It was not an easy choice,” Nelson told The Forum. “But these main anchor gigs don’t open up very often.”
On WDAY, reporter Todd Kurtz will replace Nelson as the co-anchor of the 5 p.m. newscast.
