Fox-owned WNYW-TV in New York has transferred Fox News Channel’s Rick Folbaum and Dari Alexander to the station’s anchor desk of the half-hour newscast at 6 p.m. weekdays. The two succeed Ernie Anastos, who will continue as anchor of the stations 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. newscasts with Rosanna Scotto, and Lyn Brown, who will return to “Good Day New York,” where she first appeared after leaving CBS News to join the station in 1990 as a contributor. Ms. Brown continues as solo anchor of the station’s 11:30 a.m. news half-hour.

The changes, which take effect this week, were announced by Scott Matthews, the news VP and news director of the WNYW-TV/WWOR-TV duopoly.
