KVOA announced it has prompted its weekend anchor to the main anchor chair.

Angelique Lizarde will co-anchor News 4 Tuscon at 5, 6, and 10pm with John Overall.

Lizarde started at the Cordillera Communication owned NBC affiliate in 2009 as an MMJ. She left the station to join KFMB-TV as a news reporter before returning to the station as a weekend anchor in 2015.


“Angelique has a unique skill set that makes her a perfect fit for our primary anchor team,” said Cathie Batbie. “She combines a great attitude with dogged-determination to deliver a quality news product, in a timely fashion, across all of our various platforms.”

Lizarde will take over the Primary Anchor chair on Monday, August 7.
