WTTG promotes two morning show co-anchors

The same day Savannah Guthrie joined NBC as new “Today” show co-host, Washington’s local Fox affiliate WTTG added a couple of morning co-hosts as well.

Wisdom Martin has been named the permanent co-host of “Fox 5 Morning News” from 4:35 a.m. to 7 a.m. Monday through Friday with Sarah Simmons. Martin had been filling in as co-host alongside Simmons for months; Simmons had been promoted to co-anchor in February when former morning news anchor Steve Cheveney left for WJLA (ABC7).

Meanwhile, Tony Perkins, the WTTG newscaster who had been appearing with Allison Seymour in the 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. hours on weekdays, has been also formally upped to the role as co-anchor of that broadcast. Perkins, who worked as a weather forecaster and reporter for ”Good Morning Amerca,” joined WTTG for a second stint in 2006 (he had previously worked there in the 90s), where he’s been ever since.
