WBZ Promotes Reporter to Morning Co-Anchor

By Kevin Eck 

CBS-owned Boston station WBZ has promoted Chris McKinnon to co-anchor of its morning and noon show.

“We are thrilled that Chris will be assuming the role as the co-anchor of WBZ This Morning with Kathryn Hauser,” said WBZ news director Gary LaPlante. “His warm personality and local knowledge, having grown up in the greater Boston area, make him a perfect fit for the morning news audience.”

McKinnon started at WBZ as a reporter in September. TVSpy reported about McKinnon’s first day at WBZ, when he walked out of frame when CBS This Morning’s Gayle King welcomed him after his report. Check out the video below.
