WISN-TV Ch. 12 announced Monday that evening anchor Craig McKee is headed to Cincinnati. According to Jan Wade, president and general manager, McKee's last day on the air in Milwaukee will be Friday.
McKee, who joined the staff at the ABC affiliate when anchor Toya Washington reduced her hours to spend more time with her family, is eagerly awaited by the team at WCPO-TV.
McKee will join the anchor team of Carol Williams, Tanya O’Rourke, Julie Dolan, Chief Meteorologist Steve Raleigh and Sports Director John Popovich on "9 On Your Side" for weekday newscasts.
It is funny, while traveling across the country, by seeing how so many different stations use channel branding. In Milwaukee, at one time, WTMJ-TV Ch. 4 was "On Your Side."
"We’re getting just the right person to complement an already strong anchor team," Alex Bongiorono, news director at WCPO, said in a statement.
"Craig’s extensive and diverse background from the combat field to the anchor desk brings together a unique style of anchoring and reporting to the Tri-State."
McKee’s first day at WCPO-TV in Cincinnati will be June 8.
