Sara Dayley Leaving as Weekend Anchor at KTVI

By Mark Joyella 

Sara Dayley, who has been serving in an unusual dual role as anchor at St. Louis Fox affiliate KTVI on weekends and PIO for a county fire department during the week will give up her anchor duties this weekend.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Dayley will be replaced on weekends by anchor-reporter Jeff Bernthal on a temporary basis.

Dayley previously worked at KSDK before leaving for the job at West County EMS and Fire Protection District, returning to the anchor desk on a part-time basis at KTVI in April. The station reportedly kept Dayley from reading any stories about the fire district to avoid the appearance of a conflict.

To keep things interesting, Dayley has also put in shifts working with Fox Sports Midwest.
