News From The Breaking News Center
Here's some breaking news you haven't seen on Channel 9's Breaking News Center: Lisa Cornwell, Channel 9's Breaking News Center reporter since its debut last September, is leaving the station for Knoxville.
Cornwell will co-anchor morning news on Knoxville's WBIR-TV (NBC affiliate Channel 10) next month, after February sweeps end. Here's the WBIR-TV announcement: http://www.wbir.com/news/local/story.aspx?storyid=54322
Cornwell, 33, has been at Channel 9 for nearly two years. Until August, she was a weekend sports anchor and sports reporter. She was moved to morning news when Channel 9 reduced the sports department to two (Dennis Janson, John Popovich) from three. I hear she wasn't happy about being moved to news, so it doesn't surprise me that she's leaving the station.
She definitely was the best female sports anchor in town until her move last year... and one of the best I've seen here. (I liked Kathrine Nero and Cammy Dierking too.)
Which women sports anchors have you liked or not liked to watch?
