New Channel 13 reporter Bridget Cannata
You know, folks, it just wouldn’t be a Monday if there weren’t some type of personnel news to report from Channel 13.
That new face you see on KOVR is Bridget Cannata. She’s a general-assignment reporter who also will be a back-up anchor on the 4, 5 and 6 p.m. newscasts. (How many anchors can they fit on that blue set, anyway?)
Cannata comes west from Kansas City, where she had reported for KSHB for the past two years. Sacramento is not alien to Cannata, though. She was born and reared in San Francisco.
And now, turning to the weather...
The station has hired Angelique Frame as a weekend meteorologist and reporter. Frame comes to us from WLWT in Cinicnnati, where her forecasts were called "Frame's Claims." She starts July 31.
And, Jeff James has reached an agreement to be the morning weather forecaster during the week for both channels 13 and 31. James comes from Tucson. "This will give Cody Stark an opportunity to have a little more fun on the anchor desk and in the field," news director Steve Charlier says.
