Current WVLT talent Heather Haley has been promoted to Senior news anchor/weekends. Taking over weekend weather duties will be current West Virginian Whitney Kent. Whitney is currently the morning and noon weather duties at WDTV-TV Clarksburg, WV. Whitney joins Senior Meteorologist Megan Campbell and soon to join the staff is Chief Meteorologist David Aldrich. Watch this interview with David. David will join the team March 22, 2010.

WVLT will also welcome a new multi-media video journalist Mario Boone. Boone KTAL-TV the NBC affiliate in Shreveport, LA. Boone has also freelanced for CNN in Atlanta and WNCF-TN in Montgomery, AL.

Of course we have reported here and here about the Michele Silva hire. Michele started on Monday as co-anchor of East TN this Morning with Bob Yarbrough. Of course it has to be noted that WVLT has as their chief cornerstones. Alan Williams, Lauren Davis and Allison Hunt-Kropff. Good job guys. Now let's go bust that #1 door down.

As we previously reported here, Brian Gregory is leaving WVLT as Executive Producer and is headed to the CBS affiliate in Sacramento, CA as Executive Producer. Brian you did good here, we will miss your mature, professional approach to news. Whoever steps into those big shoes, better be good.
