WYFF Promotes Traffic Anchor to News Anchor

By Kevin Eck 

WYFF has promoted Allyson Powell to news anchor from traffic anchor.

Powell joins Geoff Hart and meteorologist Dale Gilbert on the station’s morning show. She started at the Greenville, S.C., NBC affiliate in July 2013 and moved from general assignment reporter to traffic anchor in October 2014.

“We are excited about Allyson’s promotion to news anchor,” said WYFF president and gm John Soapes. “Allyson loves working in her hometown of Greenville. She has a great personality, is respected and well-liked. The anchor team of Geoff Hart and Allyson Powell is a winning combination.”

Powell worked at KOSA in Odessa, Texas and at Comcast Sports Bay Area in San Francisco before joining WYFF.
