Patsy Kelly has been promoted to co-anchor the evening newscast for the Myrtle Beach, South Carolina CBS affiliate WBTW.
Kelly currently anchors the 9 a.m, Noon and 4 p.m. newscasts. She will continue to solo anchor at 4, but will join Bob Juback at 5 and 6 p.m. and Annette Peagler at 5:30 p.m.
“We’re lucky that we could replace a popular anchor like Meghan Miller with somebody on our staff who we believe will maintain our status as the top-rated station in the market,” said news director Paul Caron.
Miller who has accepted a position at Coastal Carolina University in Conway, South Carolina as Media and Communication director of the Conway Medical Center College of Health and Human Performance.
“We hate to lose Meghan Miller, who has been an integral part of the WBTW News team, but we’re happy that Patsy Kelly has agreed to fill her position,” WBTW vice president and general manager Robert Raff. “Patsy’s experience and track record of community involvement perfectly fit her new role.”
Kelly joined the station in April 2015 as co-anchor of the morning newscast and anchor of the local WFXB Fox morning newscast, produced by WBTW. Before that, she worked as an anchor and reporter for WTHI in Terre Haute, Indiana.
