St. Louis Station Hires Afternoon Anchor

By Kevin Eck 

St. Louis NBC affiliate KSDK has hired Brent Solomon as an anchor and reporter.

Solomon will join Kay Quinn as co-anchor of the 4 p.m. newscast in January and will report for all shows. He comes from WWBT in Richmond, Va., and he has been in local TV since 2003.

KSDK news director Art Holliday said he always values the opportunity to hire veteran journalists.


“That applies to Brent Solomon, who has been in the TV news business for two decades as a reporter and anchor, gaining a reputation as a newsroom leader and strong reporter,” said Holliday. “Brent has repeatedly said he’s excited to learn about St. Louis and tell stories that make an impact.”

Before working at WWBT, Solomon worked as a reporter in Miami, Tampa, Fla., Little Rock, Ark., Albany, Ga. and Savannah, Ga.
