KTBC’s Mike Warren is getting a new co-anchor.

Rebecca Thomas will join Warren for the Fox-owned station’s 5 p.m., 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. newscasts beginning Sept. 21.

She fills the spot vacated by Christine Haas, who left earlier this summer to start her own business.

Most recently, Thomas was at KPHO, the CBS affiliate in Phoenix. She also worked for Phoenix ABC affiliate KNXV, as well as stations in Palm Springs, Calif.; and Yuma, Ariz.

Thomas is a graduate of San Diego State University.

“Storytelling is my passion and I look forward to telling the stories of the people in this vibrant community,” she said.
