Toni Valliere hasn't officially assumed her new duties as Jim Jackson's co-anchor on the 6 and 10 p.m. newscasts, but she sure looked at home filling in for Tiffany Alaniz tonight. Her delivery was flawless and she had excellent rapport with the veteran Jackson.
Considering that most KSN viewers are aware of Ms. Valliere from her work as a reporter and morning anchor, the transition should be smooth, and working alongside Jackson definitely helps. His calm reassuring manner has helped steer KSN through some lean times.
Ms. Valliere will be missed on the morning program, but I am betting she is looking forward to her new work hours.
