Last Friday NBC Channel 4 News gave newly-fired Sue Simmons a touching farewell, after 32 years co-anchoring the news with Chuck Scarborough. On Monday night viewers received the unofficial announcement of her replacement when Shiba Russell showed up to co-anchor the 11 PM News.
Ms. Russell joined NBC News last year. The former New Jersey resident’s first TV jobs were with News 12. Several media references have described her as a younger, lower-paid version of Sue Simmons. Source
