Diane Cho, who joined KMBC as a morning anchor in February 2011, will transition into a 10 p.m. reporter position starting later this month, sources have told Bottom Line exclusively.
She will likely make the move prior to the important November TV sweeps period, which starts Oct. 26 and will run through Nov. 22 this year.
The popular Cho came to the ABC affiliate from WJXT in Jacksonville, FL. She reportedly has had a difficult time adjusting to the challenging hours involved with a morning broadcast that starts at 4 a.m. In fact, even the KMBC profile of her notes: “When Cho is not working, she loves to catch up on lost sleep…”
Cho grew up in Orlando and graduated from the University of Florida with a double major in broadcast journalism and political science. She interned for Hearst television affiliate WESH-TV in Orlando, Fl., and also reported for WRDW in Augusta, Ga.
