As you all know, our Rebecca Stewart is now working for Hartford Hospital. Since she left, FOX CT has been playing musical anchors.
Well we have finally hired a new permanent weekend anchor. She will start working August 25th. I have not met her yet but received this e-mail from our News Director, Coleen Marren.
"I am happy to announce we have hired a weekend anchor. Alison Morris will be joining us on August 25. Alison joins us after spending the past five years in Pittsburgh at KDKA-TV. Alison is from Long Island and attended Yale. She has worked for the Wall Street Journal and CNBC. She will be working on the weekends as an anchor and during the week she will be doing some consumer reporting for the web and the Courant.
Alison is a dedicated, multi-media journalist who is filled with enthusiasm. She is a marathon runner and plans to run the Hartford Marathon, adding to her successful completion of the Paris Marathon earlier this year.
Her family and friends are welcoming her back East. I trust you will do the same. Alison will be here Tuesday to meet everyone. "
