Fox29 alumna Kerri-Lee Halkett has landed on her feet.
She's been signed as a reporter/anchor at WVIT in West Hartford, Conn., aka NBC Connecticut, as the station's news director, Mike St. Peter, told me this morning.
Start date is Dec. 13, he said, adding that Halkett will be fill-in anchoring at the outset to cover for holiday vacationers.
Halkett and her husband, lawyer Kirt Mayland, have a vacation home in the area. The family lives in Philly, where her 5-year-old son, Van, is enrolled in school. (Update: She will be known as Kerri-Lee Mayland at her new job.)
