Stephanie Goetz moves to Valley News Live

A well-known face of WDAY-TV in Fargo on weekends will be the new face at 5 p.m. on KVLY-TV in Fargo.

Griff Potter, KVLY news director, confirmed that Stephanie Goetz will soon be appearing as a 5 p.m. anchor.

Potter said Goetz will also take an active role in sports coverage.

“One of the strengths we believe Stephanie brings to the table is her interest and knowledge of sports,” Potter said. “That’s very positive that women are becoming more involved in sports, and we hope to take advantage of Stephanie’s sports knowledge.”

Goetz will fill an open position at the station, vacated when longtime anchor Daron Selvig moved to morning programming.

Reporter Yvonne Man will become a weekend anchor.

Potter said Goetz will begin anchor duties after Jan. 1.

“I’m really excited about the opportunity. To be able to do both news and sports, it’s a dream,” Goetz said, although she added it will be difficult to leave behind the colleagues she has worked alongside since 2008.

Prior to coming to the Fargo market, Goetz worked at WDAZ in Grand Forks.
