Krebs had been an anchor for WRC’s morning news show, “News4 Today,” for 18 years. Previously, he worked at WBAL in Baltimore before coming to the Washington station as a reporter in 1980.

“For 32 years, Joe Krebs has been such an important member of the News4 team,” news VP Camille Edwards said in a statement. “His warm and calm demeanor has helped our viewers wake up informed and ready for the day ahead.”

Anchor Aaron Gilchrist will serve as Krebs’s placement, and join Eun Yang as co-anchor of the morning news show. Gilchrist worked at the NBC station in Richmond for 11 years before coming to NBC4, where he’s been for the past two years.

Krebs will officially sign off Friday, March 30, and the “News4 Today” willpay tribute to him during the whole week, the station added in its announcement.
