Frankie Jupiter Joins WDJT in Milwaukee as Morning Anchor

By Kevin Eck 

Frankie Jupiter will join Milwaukee CBS affiliate WDJT as the co anchor of its morning newscast.

Starting in June, Jupiter will join Mike Curkov and meteorologist Justin Thompson-Gee weekday mornings from 4:30 to 7 a.m. on WDJT and from 7 to 9 a.m. on WMLW.

Jupiter comes from WSTM in Syracuse, where he was a morning anchor.


“The people are what made me want to come back to the Midwest,” said Jupiter. “Milwaukee is a special place and I can’t wait to start exploring it—and meeting the people who make it great. I’m looking forward to getting viewers ready for their day and starting their morning with a smile.”

He replaces Pauleen Le, who left in March to become a reporter at WCCO in Minneapolis.

“Frankie is one of a kind. His warmth and friendliness jump off the screen and viewers will feel like they’re getting their headlines from a friend and neighbor.” said news director Jessie Garcia.
