Sinclair’s New Morning Anchor Teases Upcoming National News Show

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

Less than two weeks ahead of Sinclair’s new national morning show’s launch, main anchor Jan Jeffcoat is giving viewers a glimpse of what the program will look like.

Jeffcoat, who was hired to launch The National Desk over the summer, has been preparing with a staff of people in D.C., where the show will air out of a studio. In the lead-up to launch, she has posted a number of clips from rehearsals and other reporting, offering up a look at the show’s set and its logo.

In one preview interview this week, Jeffcoat interviewed a founder of one of the groups protesting the presidential election results in Washington, D.C. today. In another post on Twitter, she shared a photo of the set.


The National Desk will air in select Sinclair markets from 6 to 9 a.m. ET where stations don’t produce their own local morning shows.
