BELL GETS ANCHOR GIG: WTAE consumer reporter Wendy Bell will join Scott Baker at the anchor desk during the noon newscast beginning Monday.

"She and Scott make a nice team and we think it's a nice fit for both of them and a good fit at noon," said WTAE news director Bob Longo.

Baker had anchored with Melanie Shafer until her maternity leave earlier this year. Then she left the station and the search for a replacement began.

"Wendy is someone with a lot of potential and little exposure to anchoring in normal day to day business," Longo said. "This is the perfect platform for her to gain that exposure, hone her skills and have more of a creative output for herself and help us a little bit."

Bell will continue to deliver her consumer reports during the station's 5 p.m. newscast.
