KSTP-TV announced Monday that it is bringing in a new face to anchor it's weekday evening and nightly news.
Paul Folger, a veteran anchor who is currently winding down his role as an anchor at ABC-owned KOCO-TV in Oklahoma City, will be joining KSTP's newscasts beginning Aug. 1.
"Paul’s dedication to local news and his eagerness to be a part of our community makes him a perfect fit for our team!" said KSTP News Director Anne Wittenborg.
Once in Minnesota, Folger will anchor KSTP's weekday newscasts at 5 p.m., 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. The station doesn't say if he'll anchor the news solo or have a co-anchor.
Folger is a native of North Carolina and previously worked at TV stations in Florida, Texas, North Carolina and Virginia.
KSTP says he's an avid cyclist, runner and swimmer.
