Boston’s WHDH has hired Reid Lamberty to replace Frances Rivera, who recently left the station to join WPIX in New York. Lamberty will co-anchor WHDH’s 5, 6, 10, and 11 p.m. newscasts alongside Kim Khazei.
“Reid is the consummate pro. He’s an experienced journalist and a perfect complement to Kim on the anchor desk,” WHDH general manager Chris Wayland said, in making the announcement.
Lamberty comes to WHDH from Miami’s WSVN (both stations are owned by Sunbeam Television). During his career, Lamberty has worked as an anchor at WNYW and WCBS in New York, and WFXT in Boston.
“I can’t wait to return to Boston and join 7 News,” Lamberty said. “I look forward to making New England my home once again.” His first day on-air will be Monday, September 12th.
