WPLG Adds Another New Anchor to Weekend Lineup

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

More anchor changes out of WPLG, the ABC affiliate in Miami.

Layron Livingston has been named co-anchor of the station’s morning newscasts. He joins anchor Neki Mohan on Saturday and Sunday mornings from 5-8 a.m. and 9-10:30 a.m.

“This announcement coincides with my Local 10 anniversary—it’s been four years since I left snowy southwest Ohio, and moved to sunny South Florida. I hit the ground running, going live my first day, and I’ve been running ever since,” said Livingston.


“Layron has really connected with our viewers since his arrival at WPLG. He has excelled in the reporting role and we are confident he will shine in this new anchor role,” said WPLG CEO and president Bert Medina.

Livingston grew up in Terrell, Texas and graduated with honors from the University of Texas at Austin. He began as a production assistant at the local NBC affiliate in Austin. He later joined the WRC consumer unit in Washington, D.C., as a writer and researcher then went to WHIO in Ohio as an anchor-reporter.

He joined the station in January 2016.
