WNYW Morning Anchor Moving to Evenings

By Kevin Eck 

After four years on the WNYW morning newscast, Lori Stokes is moving to evenings.

Fellow morning anchor Rosanna Scotto announced the news this morning on Facebook with a picture of the two behind the anchor desk.

#breakingnews! Did you hear that Lori will be anchoring #the10oclocknews FOX 5 / Fox5NY.com? wrote Scotto. “I will miss working with you on #gdny.”


Starting June 7, Stokes will anchor the Fox-owned station’s 5, 6 and 10 p.m. newscasts. She’s been anchoring both mornings and evenings.

A Fox spokesperson told TVSpy a national search is underway for Stokes’ replacement.

Stokes replaced Greg Kelly in 2017 after leaving WABC in 2016. Before that she was a reporter-anchor at MSNBC and NBC News and WJLA in Washington D.C.
