Only Trunzo Makes the Cut at KMSB

Posted By on Fri, Dec 16, 2011 at 12:30 PM

KOLD, owned by Raycom, has decided to go with in-house anchor talent for its produced newscasts for KMSB. Only Gina Trunzo, who handled weather for KMSB's Belo-produced 9 pm newscast, has a position in the new arrangement, according to a KOLD press release.

Trunzo will join Mark Stine and Erin Jordan on FOX 11 Daybreak, which will air from 7-9 am weekdays on KMSB. The scheduled launch date is Feb. 1. Stine also replaces Scott Kilbury on KOLD News 13 This Morning, which airs from 4:30 to 7 am. As a result Kilbury is transferring to the KMSB 9 pm news anchor desk. Aaron Pickering will handle weather responsibilities alongside Kilbury at 9.

KOLD continues to search for reporter, photographer and behind-the-scenes positions, according to news director Michelle Germano in the press release, but the on-air talent announcement does not bode well for long-time KMSB anchor Lou Raguse or sportscasters David Kelly and Kevin Lewis.

Raycom and Belo entered into a shared service arrangement last month. Under the deal, Belo, which owns KMSB and KTTU, will pay Raycom to produce news broadcasts from KOLD's studio facilities near Cortaro and I-10. The move is leading to the dissolution of more than 30 positions at KMSB.
