Minneapolis Station Makes Anchor Moves

By Kevin Eck 

Minneapolis NBC affiliate KARE is making anchor changes on weekends and in its morning show.

Starting Saturday, February 4 Camille Williams will be joined by her husband Cory Hepola on weekend evening newscasts. They’ll anchor with meteorologist Laura Betker and sports anchor Dave Schwartz.

“Cory Hepola and Camille Williams are individual talents, who offer unique perspectives to this market,” said news director Jane Helmke. “Their combined experience and natural rapport will bring an exciting and fresh energy to our weekend newscasts.”


Dave Schwartz has been named co-anchor of KARE Saturday after filling in alongside co-anchor and chief meteorologist Belinda Jensen.

“Dave has been integral to the development of KARE Saturday, helping set its lively tone,” said Helmke. “We are thrilled he will continue to contribute to the show’s ongoing success.”

On its morning show, Rena Sarigianopoulos and Bryan Piatt will join Kim Insley, meteorologist Sven Sundgaard and traffic anchor Alicia Lewis for the month of February.

Weekend anchor Zach Lashway will join Adrienne Broaddus and Jeff Edmondson as co-anchor of KARE’s 11 a.m. weekday newscast.
