WCCO Names New Saturday Morning Anchor

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

WCCO, the CBS affiliate in Minnesota, has prompted reporter Jennifer Mayerle to co-anchor the station’s Saturday morning show.

“Thrilled to join Mike Austyniak and the rest of the WCCO Saturday morning team,” Mayerle tweeted over the weekend with a photo of her on the desk.

Mayerle returned to the CBS-owned station as a reporter in 2014. She started there as an intern before taking her first job at KWES in Midland, Texas. Prior to WCCO, she worked at CBS46 Atlanta as an investigative reporter.

The station’s Facebook page has been updated to reflect the anchor change.

Mayerle replaced Natalie Nyhus, who left the station earlier this year.
