Mark Mulholland has been named the co-anchor of WNYT NewsChannel 13’s 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. newscasts, succeeding Jim Kambrich.
“Mark has been a dedicated and effective force on our reporting team, striving to get the story first and right,” said Stephen P. Baboulis, vice president and general manager of WNYT.
“His commitment to helping the community through Kelly’s Angels and other causes makes him a perfect choice to join our strong anchor team, alongside the caring and passionate work of Benita Zahn and Elaine Houston. I’m confident Mark will fit right in.”
Mulholland, a Wilton resident, has worked at the station for 25 years. He started as a night-time reporter covering breaking news and went on to become the weekend sports anchor. Most recently, he served as the station’s Saratoga-North Country News Chief.
“To be invited to follow the incomparable Jim Kambrich and occupy the same broadcast space once belonging to the legendary Ed Dague is humbling and exciting,” Mulholland said in a statement. “This isn’t a position I take lightly.”
He will co-anchor the station’s 5 p.m. news with Elaine Houston, and at 6 p.m. with Benita Zahn.
“I’m blessed to work alongside two of the most respected, caring journalists in the business,” said Mulholland. “Elaine’s passion for improving the community is obvious and no one in the industry works harder than Benita.”
He begins his role as co-anchor on Monday, Dec. 7.
