BRIEFLY SPEAKING….CH-CH-CHANGES EDITION

After  four years at ABC News where he anchored “World News Now” and “America This Morning,” Kendis Gibson moves to MSNBC and a change of work hours.

He is expected to anchor the 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. hours on MSNBC on both Saturdays and Sundays.

He’s also worked CBS News’ Newspath; CNN and its sister network, HLN; and for Washington D.C.’s WJLA.

Also showing up at MSNBC is Hugo Balta.

He’ll likely cross paths with Gibson, working as senior producer, working on weekend programming.

It’s a return for Balta, who first worked at MSNBC 20 years ago and most recently was with ESPN.

Last April, we told you about one-time Hartford reporter Jason Newton, who left Nexstar’s Washington Bureau after 11 months and resurfaced as a press secretary without portfolio.

The former WTNH reporter has one now.

He’ll be Connecticut Congresswoman Jahana Hayes’ press secretary.

Glad he’s settled.
