“WKYC is pleased to announce that weekend morning news anchor Kim Wheeler has moved over to the weekday morning newscast,” said Mike McCormick, Channel 3 News Director. “Kim has been part of our viewers’ morning routine on the weekend for ten years now and with a new family, her new weekday move works well with her schedule.

“I’m thrilled to be part of the morning show that starts the day for many viewers Monday through Friday.” said Kim. “Having been a part of the weekend broadcasts for over 10 years, I do have to confess it’ll be nice to now have Saturday and Sunday off.”
