WTTG, the Fox station in Washington, D.C., has named a new weekend morning anchor.
Cori Coffin has been promoted from her role as a general assignment reporter.
“Cori is an incredibly talented journalist and we look forward to the energy she will bring to our weekend morning news,” said news director Paul McGonagle.
Coffin, who came to D.C. in 2017 from KVUE in Austin, Tex., will replace longtime anchor Annie Yu on the weekend morning desk. Yu anchored the Saturday and Sunday morning shows for the station. She has since left. A spokesperson confirms it was an amicable split.
The promotion is effective immediately.
