NEW HAVEN — Longtime News 8 anchor Darren Kramer is stepping down from his 10 p.m. slot.

Instead, viewers will see Kramer alongside Ann Nyberg, at 5 p.m. and 5:30 p.m., WTNH announced Wednesday. He will also file special reports that will be seen on the station.

WTNH said Kramer adjusted his schedule to spend more time with his family.

Viewers will now see Dennis House anchor the 10 p.m. newscast with Nyberg, the station said. House will continue to serve as co-anchor of the 6 p.m. newscast and host “This Week in Connecticut with Dennis House.”

“Darren’s commitment to the people of Connecticut and his co-workers is unparalleled,” said Rich Graziano, the vice president and general manager of WTNH and WCTX, in a statement. “I am happy that Darren will now be home for dinner every night. That we can seamlessly fill his position with someone of Dennis House’s pedigree is just another testament that News 8 is home to Connecticut’s most experienced news team.”

Kramer has been a television journalist for the past 35 years, 23 of which he has spent with WTNH, according to his LinkedIn page.

“It’s the only thing I have ever wanted to do,” Kramer said in a statement. “One of the challenges just about everyone in this business faces is the schedule. Most of us either get up in the middle of the night or come home in the middle of the night. I have done both for years.”

“Now, I’m thrilled to have landed a local TV news rarity,” he said.

The new anchor lineup will start Tuesday.
