The ABC News programs “World News Now” and “America This Morning” have a new co-anchor, with ABC News naming Kenneth Moton for the job.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that Moton, who was formerly with that city’s WFTV Channel 9, joins Janai Norman, who also worked at WFTV, on the anchor desk for the network’s overnight programming.

The report quotes a note sent Tuesday by ABC News President James Goldston to the news division in which he says: “Kenneth is a formidable reporter with a genuine and great curiosity about the world. We’re very fortunate he’s joining our overnight team at the anchor desk. Both shows are stronger than ever, finishing the recent season #1 across the board.”

Following his four years in Orlando, Moton went in 2011 to WPVI, ABC’s station in Philadelphia.
