Tony Perkins joins NBC4 Washington as an anchor of its morning newscast News4 Today, reports TV Spy.

According to the TV Spy post, “Perkins will join Jummy Olabanji, Chuck Bell, Melissa Mollet and Molette Green as anchor Eun Yang moves to a new assignment anchoring evening newscasts for the station.

“Viewers in the Washington area have known and appreciated Tony for decades,” said Mike Goldrick, vice president of news for NBC4 and Telemundo 44. “We think that kind of experience living in and covering our community is critical to a successful anchor team.”

Perkins pictured above, left WUSA in D.C. last Fall, states the post. He previously served as the weatherman on Good Morning America for several years. Perkins will continue his radio partnership with Donnie Simpson on Majic 102.3 in the evenings.

In addition, Pat Lawson Muse, above, will retire after 41 years with WRC-TV. According to TV Spy, Muse made history in the early 1980s when she and Barbara Harrison teamed up as the first African American female anchor team in the country. In the decades since, Muse has been a staple on the evening news, anchoring News4 at 4 for 27 years.

“Pat has been an incredible member of this team in so many ways,” Goldrick said. “I’ve always appreciated her kindness to her colleagues and her commitment to our community.”
