Ch 12 preps for Ch 64
Channel 12 has hired two new reporters, in preparation for the launch of its 10 p.m. newscast Monday on WSTR-TV (Channel 64). Richard Jordan, a bilingual reporter from El Paso's KVIA-TV , and Lauren Bercarich from WSIL-TV in Carterville, Ill., will primarily report for the 10 p.m. during the week. Both will work weekends, and alternate between the 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. news. Reporter Larry Davis will move to Monday-Friday, says News Director Elbert Tucker. Those watching the 10 p.m. news on Channel 64 may see plenty of Channel 12 faces -- except for maybe main anchors Rob Braun, Kit Andrews and Tim Hedrick. Sometimes viewers may see the same reporter covering a breaking story at 10 p.m. and 11 p.m., he says.
