Fox46 names co-anchor for evening newscasts

Joining WJZY (Channel 46) as co-anchor next week is Bill Melugin who will work on Fox46's 6 and 10 p.m. newscasts.

Melugin comes from the Fox affiliate in El Paso, Texas, where he was a reporter and fill-in anchor for the last two years.

When Fox46 launched its news department last year, it de-emphasized the role of traditional anchors, instead trying to make the stories the focus of the newscasts. But a few months ago, it adopted a more standard approach, teaming Barbara Pinson and sportscaster Anthony Flores as the main faces of the evening shows.
