Channel 12 Names New Prime Time Anchor

Liz Quirantes will no longer have to look like your garden variety hottie stood up at the altar.

More than a year after WPEC-Channel 12 canned longtime anchor Curt Fonger, leaving Quirantes to anchor many newscasts alone, the West Palm Beach/Treasure Coast CBS affiliate has named Fonger’s replacement.

And station honchos had to look all the way in Seattle to find the rare bird who, they think, will lift the station up from historic lows.

John Discepolo, weekend anchor at the coffee city’s KOMO-ABC 4, is set to start at Channel 12 on September 24, according to TVSpy.

He’ll read the local news alongside Quirantes at 6 p.m. and 11 p.m.

Discepolo knocked around New York City television until two years ago, when he moved to the left coast. He was sports director and anchor at WNYW-Fox 5 in NYC for five years.

“This is an incredible opportunity that came my way, and one that I could not pass up,” Discepolo told TVSpy.
