Connolly comes to WESH from WFXT in Boston where he was a morning anchor and reporter.

Current 5:00 p.m. anchor Jim Payne will continue to anchor at 4:00, 6:00 and 11:00 p.m.

“With so many hours of news a day, adding Brett to the anchor team will only strengthen how WESH 2 covers news for Central Florida viewers,” Jim Carter, president and GM of WESH said in a statement. Carter also said, “Adding Brett will allow Jim Payne to cover more news from the field, something that we wanted to do for some time.”

Connolly starts Monday, February 17.
