Berkshire Hathaway’s WPLG in Miami has promoted Alex Finnie to co-anchor of the station’s weekend evening newscasts.
She joins Andrew Perez on the anchor desk for the Saturday and Sunday 5, 6 and 11 p.m. newscasts.
Finnie has been with the station since May 2018 and has been an interim anchor on the weekend primetime shift since last year.
Being a local product helped.
“We are Local 10, and when we can find someone like Alex with the talent, skills and the local roots, it’s a win for the station and the community,” said WPLG President-CEO Bert Medina.
Finnie grew up in Miami Shores.
She began her journalism career as a newsroom assistant in New York and also worked on-air in Pennsylvania and Alabama before returning to Miami.
