MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- CBS 58 announces the addition of veteran journalist Natalie Shepherd as the new evening co-anchor in Milwaukee.

Shepherd will join Bill Walsh on the anchor desk for the CBS 58 News at 5 p.m. and 10 p.m., as well as the CBS 58 news at 9 p.m. on WMLW, The M.

Shepherd comes to CBS 58 from WWL-TV in New Orleans, where she served as the primary weeknight co-anchor. Prior to New Orleans, Shepherd worked for six years as an anchor/reporter at WFLA-TV in Tampa, covering everything from the Republican National Convention to the Gulf oil spill.

Shepherd started her career in the Midwest at television stations in Michigan and earned a Masters Degree in Broadcast Journalism from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.

“We’re excited to have Natalie join our talented news team,” CBS 58 News Director Kent Harrell said. “I love the energy and enthusiasm she will bring to our newscast. I see her as another reason for viewers to continue making the switch to CBS 58 News.”

Shepherd joins CBS 58 at the end of January.
