SALT LAKE CITY, Utah -- Utah's first TV station, ABC4 Utah, along with Utah’s CW30, are pleased to announce the return of Anchor/Reporter Randall Carlisle to the stations’ award-winning news team.

Carlisle will anchor and lead ABC4 Utah’s weekend newscasts beginning May 10th. Carlisle will join forecaster Kylie Bearse and sportscasters Wesley Ruff and Dana Greene for ABC4 Utah News at 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. each Saturday and Sunday. Carlisle’s return also creates a reunion with longtime colleague Craig Wirth, whose popular Wirth Watching reports are back on Sunday nights on ABC4 Utah. In addition to his weekend duties, Carlisle will also be providing weekly special reports and Good4Utah correspondence.

Carlisle has a strong history with KTVX. He served as a primary anchor for the station for nearly 20 of his 25 years on Utah television. Carlisle has informed Utahns for decades, covering local stories and news events such as the devastating floods of 1983 in Salt Lake City, The Singer Swapp standoff in Marion, live funeral coverage for LDS President Spencer W. Kimball, the Mark Hoffman bombing murders, presidential visits including that of President Ronald Reagan in 1982, numerous Temple Square Christmas lighting ceremonies, the 1999 fatal tornado that hit downtown Salt Lake City and continuing coverage of Elizabeth Smart’s kidnapping and recovery.

“It’s great to have a journalist of Randall’s depth, experience and quality added to our Good4Utah news team,” says Richard Doutre` Jones, ABC4 Utah and CW30 Vice President and General Manager. “His love for Utah and his passion and feel for the news is truly genuine.”

“Randall is one of the best journalists I’ve had the pleasure to work alongside. He’s great under pressure,” says George Severson, ABC4 Utah and CW30 News Director. “Having him back in the newsroom and behind the weekend news desk is really a good thing for Utah viewers. Randall’s presence on the weekend news reflects our commitment to providing accurate, engaging and fair news coverage for all Utahns.”

Carlisle rounds out ABC4 Utah’s and CW30’s stellar team of experienced evening news anchors lead by Kim Fischer and Don Hudson at 5 p.m., 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. and Nadia Crow and Brian Carlson at 4 p.m. each week night.

“I’m excited to become involved again with Utah news,” says Carlisle. “I’m a reporter at heart and have been frustrated not to be involved when big stories break like the recent shooting at the federal courthouse.”

Carlisle officially rejoins the ABC4 Utah and Utah’s CW30 News Team as of May 3, 2014, with Carlisle’s first day behind the weekend news desk scheduled for May 10th.

“ABC4 Utah has a new vision and commitment to the people of this state and is delivering with a journalist commitment to being Good4Utah, which is the strongest promise and brand I have worked with in my long career,” says Carlisle. “I can’t wait to be part of it.”
