The news of her departure naturally saddens ABC 6 News viewers. But some good news is that KAAL-TV is adding a familiar face to its lineup.
Emmy Award-winning journalist Robin Wolfram joins KAAL-TV as an anchor starting May 2023. Previously, she worked for KTTC News and anchored newscasts in Rochester, Mason City, Iowa, and the Twin Cities.
Wolfram has also hosted a popular HGTV program where she shared her enthusiasm for interior decorating, DIY tasks, and home improvement tips.
Robin Wolfram gave up her career in television seven years ago when she returned to Iowa to take care of her parents. However, she has now decided to return to the media industry as an evening anchor.
Wolfram will be joined by one of the area’s most experienced broadcasters, James Wilcox, on the evening news.
Wilcox is the station’s newly named managing editor. He anchors ABC 6 News at 5:00 p.m. and co-anchors ABC 6 News at 6:00 p.m., 6:30 p.m., and 10:00 p.m. with Laura Lee.
Through the years, Wolfram and Wilcox have developed a friendship. And he is now delighted to have her as his co-anchor.
