WCPO Hires Anchor from Mississippi Station

By Kevin Eck 

Today is Ryan Houston‘s first day at Cincinnati ABC affiliate WCPO.

Houston was at WAPT in Jackson, Mississippi for two years as the 6 and 10 p.m. weekend news anchor. He’ll begin anchoring The NOW Cincinnati alongside Tanya O’Rourke next week.

WVXU reports Houston replaces Julie Dolan, who moved to Louisville.

“Ryan is a high-caliber journalist who will have an immediate positive impact at 9 On Your Side,” said Chip Mahaney, news director. “His expertise in investigative reporting and fighting for his community will be a great fit for the station and the communities we serve.”
