With NBC4 sports anchor Lindsay Czarniak leaving for ESPN, whither her co-worker/fiance Craig Melvin? He kept quiet about his plans at her going-away party last week, but station officials announced Wednesday he’s headed to MSNBC. Melvin, who has subbed as an anchor for the cable news outlet, will be based in New York — not too terribly far from his future bride, in Bristol, Conn. — as a daytime anchor and reporter. He and Czarniak, who met on the job after he came to D.C. three years ago, are planning an October wedding in Washington.
