DALLAS -- The newest co-anchor of News 8 Daybreak has a familiar face.
On Friday it was announced that Alexa Conomos - who has been filling in beside Ron Corning each morning for the past few weeks - has been offered the job full-time.
She's replacing Cynthia Izaguirre, who moved to the 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. newscasts after Gloria Campos retired earlier this year.
“Alexa is a parent and relates to so many of our viewers trying to get children up, and out the door every morning,” said Executive News Director Carolyn Mungo. “Her concerns are their concerns, and she brings a special warmth to the broadcast.”
Conomos has worked for News 8 since 2002 when she was hired as a traffic reporter. She has previously worked at Texas Cable News (TXCN) and KMIR in Palm Springs.
News 8 Daybreak airs 4:30-7 a.m. on weekdays.
Mungo also announced Friday that reporter Carla Wade will now be anchoring weekend morning newscasts, along with reporting during the week.
Congrats to both of these wonderful ladies!
