Steve Chenevey, the morning news anchor at local Fox affiliate WTTG, is leaving to join WJLA at the end of this month.
Chenevey, who has worked at WTTG since 2003, will partner up with Cynne Simpson on the ABC affiliate to co-anchor “Good Morning Washington” and “ABC7 Noon News.”
Simpson has been the permanent solo anchor for both newscasts (though with occasional fill-in co-anchors) since taking over last June for Alison Starling, who moved to the 5 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts.
Station general manager Bill Lord — recently upped to vice president and GM, overseeing both Allbritton-owned WJLA and NewsChannel 8 — said in the announcement that the station has been “working to put this team together for quite some time.”
“Steve and Cynne did an exceptional on camera session together, and we believe they will be the team to watch on morning news for years to come,” Lord added.
