WNBC Names Shiba Russell and Tom Llamas as 5 p.m. Anchor Team
WNBC/Channel 4, which previously decided to bring back its 5 p.m. newscast, has named its anchor team.

“A new, one hour newscast at 5 p.m. will offer viewers a compelling choice for local news,” said Susan Sullivan, WNBC, Vice President of News. “The selection as anchors of Shiba Russell and Tom Llamas, two award-winning journalists, is essential to ensuring the effective delivery of the critical local news and information that is so vital to our viewers.”
