Richard Ransom, for years the chief anchor for WREG, News Channel 3, will be doing business at a new stand, come Monday, September 25.

On that date, Ransom, who left WREG's employ several weeks ago, will become lead anchor, along with Katina Rankin, for the evening newscasts of WATN, Channel 24. He will also become the moderator for Local 24, the station's weekly news interview show.

Brandon Artiles, who had previously performed those functions for WATN, will continue reporting for 24 and will be evening anchor for the 9 p.m. news broadcast of WLMT, CW 30, 24's affiliate station, broadcasting from the same studio.

The station's management announced the changes on Thursday.
