The recent departures of Sharon Reed and Thomas Roberts has caused a ripple effect on CBS46’s anchor scheduling.
Earlier this week, Shon Gables was granted an official evening anchor job. Today, the station announced Tracye Hutchins was moving to afternoons and co-anchoring the 5 p.m. show with a rotating set of hosts while CBS46 seeks a second permanent late afternoon/evening anchor.
Former 11Alive morning host Karyn Greer will take over mornings for Hutchins, pairing her with Gurvir Dhindsa, formerly of “Good Day Atlanta” on Fox 5. Dhindsa joined CBS46 in 2017. She worked at Fox 5 twice: from 1997 to 2000 and again from 2011 to 2016.
Greer worked as an evening anchor for CBS in the late 1990s, then spent 15 years with 11Alive until 2015. She was hired by CBS46 as an investigative reporter soon after. She later became a noon anchor and handled community affairs. She will continues with both those duties.
Hutchins is the station’s longest-running anchor. She came to CBS46 in 2007 and hosted mornings until 2013. She moved to afternoons, went back to mornings in 2018 and is now back in afternoons.
That station’s morning show has gone through many iterations in recent years with anchors including the late Amanda Davis, Brandon Rudat, Gables, Mike Brooks and Gloria Neal.
Rudat just wrote a searingly honest book “Mascara Boy” about his life and is available to become a CBS46 anchor if they want him. Brooks is now an evening anchor at a Fox affiliate in Oklahoma City. Neal moved back to Denver and is now director of public affairs at the mayor’s office.
