KCOP-TV weekend anchor Robert Kovacik is ankling his duties at the Los Angeles UPN affil, which is meanwhile hiring two news personalities.

KCOP said that Kovacik is leaving to pursue new opportunities, although it is not clear where he is headed.

Kent Ninomiya joins the Chris Craft-owned station as weekend anchor and reporter from KGO-TV in San Francisco, and Gina Silva, formerly of syndie newsmag “Extra,” is joining as reporter and backup anchor.

Prior to working as morning anchor and reporter for KGO, Ninomiya was a reporter for WLS-TV in Chicago.

Silva was a member of the investigative team at KNXV-TV in Phoenix before working on “Extra” and hosting the weekly show “Arizona Journal.”
