Mark Zinni will be joining Hartford CBS affiliate WFSB.
According to the Hartford Courant, Zinni will join Denise D’Ascenzo as co-anchor of the 5:30 p.m. news.
In the announcement by news director Dana Neves Thursday, Zinni will also “report during the day, and introduce folks to some different and interesting topics around Connecticut,” apparently also taking over some of the duties being left behind by departing reporter Kate Rayner.
WFSB anchor Dennis House tweeted out a welcome to Zinni.
Welcome @MarkZinni to @WFSBnews! Joining @DeniseDAscenzo and me on the evening news in October.
