WRTV-TV Channel 6 has hired a news anchor and promoted another to complete the station’s evening on-air team.

Jenna Kooi has become an anchor at WRTV after working as a freelance reporter for the station and will co-anchor the 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts with Todd Connor.

Kooi, formerly known as Jenna Maloney, previously worked in Indianapolis as a morning anchor and reporter for WXIN-TV Channel 59. Her career also includes stops in Baltimore, Phoenix and Columbus, Ga.

She and her husband, Jeff Kooi, have two children and live in Hamilton County.

Ericka Flye, who serves as the 5 p.m. co-anchor with Connor, has been promoted to also co-anchor the 6 p.m. newscast.

Flye, an Anderson native, has been with WRTV for 12 years. She previously worked as an anchor and reporter at the Ohio News Network in Columbus.

Trisha Shepherd, who anchored WRTV’s newscasts at 6 p.m., 7 p.m. and 11 p.m., left the station in September to take a position with Riley Children's Foundation.

WRTV is owned by Cincinnati-based E.W. Scripps Co., which operates 13 newspapers and 19 television stations.

  1. If what you stated is true, then this article is entirely inaccurate. "State sells bonds" is same as "State borrows money". Supposedly the company will "pay for them". But since we are paying the company, we are still paying for this road with borrowed money, even though the state has $2 billion in the bank.

  2. Andrew hit the nail on the head. AMTRAK provides terrible service and that is why the state has found a contractor to improve the service. More trips, on-time performance, better times, cleanliness and adequate or better restrooms. WI-FI and food service will also be provided. Transit from outlying areas will also be provided. I wouldn't take it the way it is but with the above services and marketing of the service,ridership will improve and more folks will explore Indy and may even want to move here.

  3. They could take the property using eminent domain and save money by not paying the church or building a soccer field and a new driveway. Ctrwd has monthly meetings open to all customers of the district. The meetings are listed and if the customers really cared that much they would show. Ctrwd works hard in every way they can to make sure the customer is put first. Overflows damage the surrounding environment and cost a lot of money every year. There have been many upgrades done through the years to help not send flow to Carmel. Even with the upgrades ctrwd cannot always keep up. I understand how a storage tank could be an eye sore, but has anyone thought to look at other lift stations or storage tanks. Most lift stations are right in the middle of neighborhoods. Some close to schools and soccer fields, and some right in back yards, or at least next to a back yard. We all have to work together to come up with a proper solution. The proposed solution by ctrwd is the best one offered so far.

  4. Fox has comments from several people that seem to have some inside information. I would refer to their website. Changed my whole opionion of this story.

  5. This place is great! I'm piggy backing and saying the Cobb salad is great. But the ribs are awesome. $6.49 for ribs and 2 sides?! They're delicious. If you work downtown, head over there.
