WXIX-TV is pleased to
announce that Scott Schneider has been named as the news anchor for FOX19
Evening News at 6:30 and The FOX19 10 O'Clock News.
Scott will co-anchor both newscasts with
FOX19's Tricia Macke. "It is important for us to keep the momentum from our #1
finish in late news from May," said FOX19 General Manger Bill Lanesey, "we felt
that after watching Scott on that show for several weeks that he is the perfect
anchor to allow us to do just that."
In addition to manning the
anchor desk with Macke, Scott will be contributing to FOX19's Reality Check
segments and play a major role in the newly formed Investigative Reporting
"We wanted to hire someone who shares our
commitment to balanced news and who can be more than just a talking head behind
a desk." said FOX19 News Director Kevin Roach.
"Scott is a working anchor who continually rolls up his sleeves to
investigate the stories relevant to our community."
Schneider joined FOX19
Balanced News in May after anchoring for 14 years in Youngstown, Ohio. He's spent the last 15 years in Ohio where he
met Kimberly, his wife of 10 years, who is an Ohio native.
