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.

    It's no secret media, like a lot of industries, has endured its share of major changes due to transitions in the technological landscape. Many folks who run large media conglomerates are getting paid handsomely to devise strategies that best implement ways to maximize a shrinking bottom line.
