Channel 2 anchor-reporter Michael Wooten will be Mary Friona's replacement on the station's 11 a.m. weekday newscast after she leaves the NBC affiliate on Friday.
Wooten, who has been anchoring the station's weekend versions of "Daybreak," made the announcement today on Facebook. He added he also is becoming the managing editor of the news department.
He also was "unofficially" the station's acting public relations man for the day since he also announced on Facebook that Heather Ly will be taking his place as the anchor on the weekend editions of "Daybreak" alongside Maria Genero on weather.
Friona announced a few weeks ago that she is leaving the station this Friday after 16 years to focus on her family.
