WPIX Moves Scott Stanford Back to News, Makes Morning Changes

By Kevin Eck 

Tribune’s New York CW affiliate WPIX is shaking things up on mornings and weekends.

According to a memo from news director Amy Waldman obtained by TVSpy, Scott Stanford, who went from sports to news and back again after he came over to WPIX from WNBC is returning to news as a morning anchor. He’ll sit next to Sukanya Krishnan from 6 to 9 a.m. weekdays.

Kori Chambers will move from mornings to the weekend 5 and 10 p.m. newscasts. He’ll also be the station’s political reporter during the week.

The weekend team of Kala Rama and Craig Treadway will move to the 5 to 6 a.m. morning news. They’ll report from 6 to 9 a.m.

Andy Adler will take Scott Stanford’s place in sports.

Stanford was moved off news when John Muller joined the station in in June 2014.

Here’s the memo:
