“There was a rumor out there that the main anchors were going to leave,” WTNH general manager Mark Higgins told the New Haven Register, discussing Baghdady’s new contract. “It’s standard to post for a position… but it all worked out.”
Earlier this month, WTNH posted a job listing on its website announcing that the station had “an opening for a main anchor” who would work alongside Darren Kramer. Baghdady currently anchors the station’s 5, 5:30, and 11 p.m. newscasts with Kramer.
The job listing has been removed as Baghdady retains her seat next to Kramer.
