With February sweeps ending Wednesday, viewers soon will start seeing local TV news changes.

Again WKRC-TV was first for all local weekday newscasts in the Nielsen overnight household ratings in sweeps (Feb. 4-March 2).

WLWT-TV finished second at 6-7 a.m., 5-6:30 p.m. and 11 p.m. WXIX-TV was third 6-7 a.m., and first for local news at 10 p.m. (tying Channel 5’s 11 p.m. audience with a 4.7 rating, or 39,193 TV homes). WCPO-TV was fourth 6-7 a.m., and third in the evening for Channel 9's new Craig McKee-Tanya O’Rourke team that debuted in January.

Former WXIX-TV morning news anchor Meghan Mongillo returns to Cincinnati TV in March as weekend anchor on WKRC-TV (Channel 12). And she can’t wait.

“I don’t start till March, but I’m thrilled with this opportunity! I’m going to be working in a city I love at the number No. 1 station. It’s truly a dream job for me,” says Mongillo, who will fill the vacancy created last summer when weekend evening anchor Curtis Jackson took a Detroit TV job.

For six years, Mongillo was a very popular “Fox 19 Morning News” reporter and news anchor when Sheila Gray, now at Channel 12,  co-hosted the program.
