KDKA-AM (1020) continues to make staff changes, this time in its news department.
The station has hired Paul Rasmussen to co-anchor the new 5 and 6 p.m. "Total News Hour" programs with Rose Ryan-Douglas. Rasmussen comes from WQIK-FM in Jacksonville, Fla., where he was morning news anchor.
Rob Milford has been sidelined by laryngitis recently and is on vacation this week. He'll return as a street reporter, starting next week, said KDKA news and program director Marshall Adams.
Morning news reporter Lisa Alexander, who joined KDKA in 1999, left the station last week.
