WDAZ news anchor Stacie Van Dyke is moving to new time slots at 6 and 10 p.m., starting Monday, the Grand Forks TV station said Wednesday.

"I'm very proud to be promoting her because she really represents what our station's about," said News Director Julie Moravchik. She said Van Dyke is a hard worker who also finds time to volunteer in the community.

Van Dyke said she loves covering the news in the Grand Forks area because there are always so many good stories. "We never have to search hard to find some amazing person doing something amazing. And I think that's pretty rare."

Molly Thorvilson, the current 6 and 10 p.m. anchor, said she is leaving for her dream job at a mountain resort in western Montana.

Her last day at the station is today, anchoring the 6 p.m. newscast.

"It will certainly be bittersweet," she said. She has enjoyed living in Grand Forks, making friends here and volunteering, she said.

Thorvilson, a Plymouth, Minn., native, began working at WDAZ in June 2011. Van Dyke, an Indianapolis native, began October 2011.

Moravchik said she'll be hiring a 5 p.m. anchor to replace Van Dyke soon, but, for now, Van Dyke will cover that time slot in addition to the other two.
