Brett Harris, Sierra Scott in talks with KWCH, Channel 12, about talk show

Harris

WICHITA — Brett Harris still is almost a year away from his noncompete agreement ending with KRBB, 97.9-FM, but it sounds like he may be lining up a job.

Harris and former KSN, Channel 3, morning anchorwoman Sierra Scott are in talks with KWCH, Channel 12, about doing a show for the station.

“We are always looking for new ideas for local programming,” said Sunflower Broadcasting president and general manager Joan Barrett in an e-mailed response. “I’ve been talking to Sierra for a few years about how we might expand her role with our company. With the change in Brett’s situation it seemed natural to have a dialogue with both of them – and that’s exactly what we are doing.”

After more than two decades with B98, Harris lost his job in July when Clear Channel Radio informed him it was going in a new direction.

Tracy Cassidy, Harris’ former morning show partner, is now on the air with Adam “Lukas” Cox.

As part of his split from B98, Harris is paid through December. At that point, his six-month noncompete begins.

Scott

Scott has been producing and hosting the positive-news show “It’s All Good With Sierra Scott” since 2006. Initially, it aired on KPTS, Channel 8. Now it airs on Sunflower’s KSCW, Channel 33.

It sounds like the show Scott and Harris may do would be a talk show format. Think a Wichita version of “Live With Kelly & Michael.”

We’ll let you know what happens.

KSN, Channel 3, finally makes changes to 10 p.m. newscast

WICHITA — At long last, KSN, Channel 3, is making changes to its 10 p.m. newscast that it first informed its staff about in February.

“The idea was to give it a fresh approach,” says Darrin Fullerton, KSN’s interim director of marketing.

The former weekend anchor team of Brooke Martin, J.D. Rudd and Jamison Coyle is the new 10 p.m. team as of today.

Coyle became KSN’s lead sports anchor in March after sportscaster Jim Kobbe left.

Aileen Simborio will replace Martin on the weekends. Meteorologist Mark Bogner will join her.

Simborio has been co-anchoring the station’s noon show. Former 10 p.m. co-anchor Stephanie Bergmann now will join Mark Davidson on the noon show.
