WRTV Channel 6 has added a new co-anchor to its 7 p.m. newscast, the Indianapolis station announced late Friday.
Jason Fechner, a reporter and anchor at WQAD-TV Channel 8 in the Quad Cities since 2006, will join WRTV on Thursday. He will co-anchor the 7 p.m. newscast with Ericka Flye.
Todd Connor, the former co-host, will focus on special projects during the 7 p.m. newscast, and will continue to co-anchor the 11 p.m. newscast.
Before joining WQAD, Fechner started his broadcast career as a reporter in LaCrosse, Wisconsin, at WXDW-TV.
Fechner grew up in Chicago and graduated from Valparaiso University. He received a master’s in journalism from Northwestern University.
