Diane Macedo Likely Moving Crosstown to WNBC Anchor Desk

macedoDiane Macedo, weekend WCBS/Channel 2 morning anchor and reporter, has left the station. Multiple sources tell Tuned In that Macedo is headed to WNBC to co-anchor the new 4 p.m. newscast debuting in May.

Channel 4 previously announced that Stefan Holt, son of NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt, was hired as co-anchor on the late afternoon broadcast.

Macedo took to Twitter announcing her farewell last weekend and teasing her next opportunity with, “can’t say yet. Soon!”

A WNBC spokesperson says they don’t comment on rumors, but wouldn’t deny it either.

Macedo, 34, joined WCBS two years ago, primarily working with Andrea Grymes on the early Saturday and Sunday broadcasts. She was a frequent fill-in in the evening when Cindy Hsu was out for a few months last year.

UPDATE: Macedo is joining ABC News as anchor of the overnight broadcast World News Now and America This Morning.

    Nothing is guaranteed in life specially being in the TV business. So you keep and eye out for any competition which means any NEW faces that come in to the TV station. And always stay on top of your GAME because you never know who will take your JOB. And always READ your contact when having a job position as a TV anchor person or TV reporter. Remember that chemistry is very important when having a TV anchor partner. It’s like TV husband & wife. So you can’t always be serious , only reading the teleprompter not making conversation.Because that hurts rating meaning Higher ups are not happy. Warning to everybody in the NEWS business or industry . Good luck Advice OK

    I had missed Shiba for a while now couldn’t understand. Media is not a fair game. I will miss her and I wish her well in all her future endeavors.

      Even worse: There’s no footnote adding that she’s actually off to ABC News and World News Now & America This Morning
