One month after Pam Saulsby was fired from WNCN, a new evening anchor has been named at the local NBC affiliate. Sharon Tazewell announced on her Facebook page Monday morning that she will be moving from morning anchor into the evening slot.
“#Breaking Join me TONIGHT as I join the evening anchor team on @WNCN at 6, 7 and 11. I hope I can stay awake! Thank you to all my morning viewers. It's been a great run! I'll see you tonight!”
So the question now is, what about Melanie Sanders? Sanders, the 6 p.m. anchor, had been filling in during the 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts. If Tazewell is taking over all of the evening newscasts, perhaps that means Sanders is moving on? We hope not!
