By Mark Joyella 

wandastarke5x7 medium web view_334x469After more than a decade anchoring evening newscasts at Winston-Salem NBC affiliate WXII, the station announced today Wanda Starke will scale back her duties, focusing exclusively on the 6 p.m. newscast:

Beginning in January 2015, Starke will co-anchor WXII 12’s 6 p.m. newscast with Cameron Kent while also producing a series of prime-time specials about issues important to the Piedmont-Triad. A new anchor, yet to be named, will assume Starke’s former duties at 5, 10 and 11 p.m. Cameron Kent will remain on all evening newscasts.

“After 37 years as a working journalist in a fast-paced industry, I am ready to shift into another gear,” Starke said. “I am first and foremost a storyteller. This move will allow me time to devote to other projects I’m eager to begin.”
