By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

In Youngstown, Ohio, a reporter-meteorologist is being promoted to the anchor chair.

Alexis Walters will be WKBN‘s newest evening anchor at 5, 6, 10 and 11 p.m.

“Alexis brings objective storytelling to fit the proud tradition of our newscasts. She is a familiar face for our viewers to get to know better as she takes on this new role and continues to report in their neighborhoods,” said Mitch Davis, WKBN’s news director.


Walters has been with the station for three years, so viewers are familiar with her work.

She’ll join anchor Dave Sess from 5-6:30 p.m. and Stan Boney at 10 and 11 p.m.

“I’m so excited for this opportunity to join you every night and keep you informed on what’s going on in our local community,” said Walters. “I look forward to sharing your stories and continuing to call this valley home.”

The new anchor is an Ohio native and graduate of Kent State University. She also has a meteorology degree from Mississippi State University.

She’ll begin her new role Aug. 10.
