Sacramento Channel 40 (KTXL) Fox affiliate said Thursday that Tia Ewing will be added as an anchor to its 5:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. weekend newscasts.
Ewing joined KTXL as a reporter in June.
Ewing spent four years honing her anchor and reporting skills in Flint, Mich.
"Tia has this huge personality, and she's a natural leader in the newsroom," said Brandon Mercer, Fox40 news director. "It became obvious that she was perfect for this role after she presented me with her ideas for creating an even faster-paced newscast, putting an even stronger emphasis on owning local breaking news. That's what she does."
