Buzz around NBC10 is that reporter/weekend anchor Kristen Welker, a five-year vet of the station, is headed west for a two-month reporting assignment at NBC's Los Angeles bureau.

Welker will provide vacation fill-in, a station rep confirmed to me. She is due back later this summer.

It's not clear who will take over Welker's anchoring seat or what her assignment will be when she returns.

The station's bio IDs her as a graduate of Germantown Friends and Harvard U.
