Channel 6 has hired Anne State as a weeknight co-anchor. She'll start at the station the week of Oct. 4, but it's not clear when she'll debut on the air.

This is a fantastic "get" for Channel 6. State is a powerful presence and will lend an air of professionalism to the newscast.
This will be especially good if she replaces Hicks. Stoker Smith was a major upgrade from Kravy. If Hicks is out next, I'm back in as a regular 6 viewer.
