By Kevin Eck 

WLWT anchor Steven Albritton is moving to the morning newscast for the Hearst owned NBC affiliate.

He’ll co anchor alongside Kelly Rippin and Randi Rico from 4:30-7 a.m. beginning Thursday, October 27.

Albritton is a native of Indiana and has been an anchor at the Cincinnati station since 2019. The station said he replaces Colin Mayfield, who is moving his family to Charlotte where he’ll work at WCNC.


“Our team of Kelly, Randi, and now Steven all understand what’s important to our viewers,” said WLWT news director Jeff Benscoter. “They all have families and know just how crazy it can get in the morning. From weather to breaking news, this team realizes the slightest blip in the morning can make or break your day. Our team is here to give you what you need to know to get you through the morning, plus the crucial information to keep you and your family healthy and safe.”
