Spokane's KXLY TV on Monday announced it's moving former KREM anchor Nadine Woodward back to evening newscasts.
Starting Sept. 12 Woodward and Mike Gonzalez, the current co-anchor at Channel 4's Good Morning Northwest TV report, will take over the evening newscast duties.
They'll co-anchor the 5, 6 and 6:30 p.m. newscasts.
In March 2010 Woodward joined KXLY after losing her longtime TV anchor job at competitor KREM-TV. KREM's action led to hundreds of angry calls and protests by her admirers.
A KXLY release said Robyn Nance and Derek Deis will take over the Good Morning Northwest anchor jobs, running from 5 to 7 a.m. Nance has been an anchor for the same evening newscast Woodard will now take over.
Deis has been KXLY's Sports Director. Mark Peterson will handle weather duties each morning, the release added.
Woodward was quoted saying she's glad to go back to evenings: “I'm also excited to be moving back to evenings where I can be much more involved in the development of the newscasts. And, it's where I'm most comfortable. I'm extremely thankful that KXLY has given me this opportunity,” added Woodward.
