KTVU Mulls Possible Anchors For New 4 PM Newscast In The Summer
Pam Cook would make for a terrific choice to become the lead anchor for KTVU's new 4 PM Newscast coming this summer.
I've always liked Cook and thought she would be great for a more time-friendly spot than her current early-morning gig on KTVU's morning news.
Cook isn't the only current anchor under consideration; there's talk that KTVU/Fox2 might look for someone outside the market to become the air talent for the new show but I think that's doubtful.
KTVU has a number of in-house candidates that are more than adequate for the 4 PM newscast although adding certain names becomes problematic.
Heather Holmes is one of the station's big names and would certainly be effective at 4 but take her away from the weekend anchor desk and risk losing audience share?
Ken Wayne is a rising star and is comfortable on his weekend anchoring gig (with Holmes) but could become enlightened as a potential solo during the week. It's possible KTVU wouldn't necessarily go with multiple anchors at 4 but that's considered unlikely.
