Channel 5’s Antwan Lewis, the likable early morning anchor and reporter, is on the move. Lewis, who joined WNYW in 2010, has been promoted to weekend co-anchor alongside Christina Park.
Lewis was the epitome of a team player in January when he was pressed into service as Good Day Early Call/Wake Up anchor. He joined Juliet Huddy from 4:30 to 7:00 a.m. That slot opened when Dave Price immediately resigned after being demoted to the early morning newscasts.
Lewis and Park will begin their new tandem Saturday.
Station publicists and even VP/GM Lew Leone refused to confirm or give any comment to Tuned In. However, Lewis’ WNYW bio page has been updated stating his new role at Channel 5. The bio adds that Lewis is a four-time Emmy winner.
The station has not revealed who will replace Lewis in the early morning slot.
