Orlando ABC affiliate WFTV is pairing Nancy Alvarez and Jorge Estevez for its evening newscasts on sister station WRDQ.
Alvarez will join Estevez as co-anchor of WRDQ’s 10 p.m. newscasts Sunday through Thursday. The pair will also anchor WFTV’s 6 and 11 p.m. newscast on Sundays. According to WFTV, they are the first Hispanic team to anchor an English language newscast in Orlando.
“They’re close friends, and it shows on television,” news director Matt Parcell said in a statement. “They present the news in a personable way.”
Alvarez previously anchored WFTV’s weekend evening newscasts. Estevez previously anchored WRDQ’s 10 p.m. newscast with Martie Salt, who will continue to anchor WFTV’s weekday evening newscasts.
