Sweeps must be just around the corner because local stations are doing some tinkering with their look, their content and their talent lineup.

Down in N’Awlins, Hearst’s WDSU has shuffled its anchor pairings for weekday and weeknight newscasts effective ….tonight!.

Travers Mackel and Christina Watkins are joining Sula Kim and Gina Swanson to anchor the weeknight newscasts.

Mackel has been with the station for 16 years.

He’ll team up with Watkins at 4 and Swanson at five.

Watkins, who’s been with the station for just under two years, will move from weekends to weekday anchoring.

In addition to the 4 pm news, she will also do the noon program.
