Larry Olevitch, president and GM of Miami NBC owned station WTVJ, says the Miami NBC owned station is changing its anchor lineup to “better serve our viewers.”

Wednesday, April 22, Jawan Strader (pictured right) will join Jackie Nespral (pictured left) as co-anchor of the 5:00, 6:00 and 11:00 p.m. news. Strader started at WTVJ in 2012 and has anchored the morning news since February 2013

That same day, Adam Kuperstein will join Trina Robinson as co-anchor at 5:30 p.m. At 11:00 p.m., he’ll anchor sports.

On Tuesday April 21, Eric Harryman will join WTVJ as morning co-anchor. He joins Pam Giganti weekdays from 4:30 to 7:00 a.m. At 11:00 a.m., he’ll co-anchor with Trina Robinson.

Harryman comes from KTXL in Sacramento, Calif. where he was the evening anchor.

“We’re also adding more news gathering resources – more reporters and more photographers in the field covering the stories the people of South Florida care about most,” said Olevitch. “‘NBC 6 South Florida is Everywhere’ is not just a marketing slogan; it’s a promise.”
