A new face for KCRA 3


I've got breaking TV news: KCRA 3 news director Anzio Williams just put out the word that the station has hired award-winning anchor/reporter Gulstan Dart (pictured). He will co-anchor the weekday evening newscasts, including KCRA Reports at 11 p.m. with Edie Lambert.

Hey, and that's just in time for the rest of us to go to bed at a decent hour after all the late nights watching the Olympics!

To be honest, I totally got brain freeze on who Dart is replacing opposite Lambert. According to Gene Robinson, creative services director for KCRA and sister station
KQCA My58 TV, "There was no one holding that spot down on a regular basis."

The station rotated several anchors, including Walt Gray and Teo Torres, in that position.

In a statement, Williams says, "Gulstan has an exceptional range of experience as both an anchor and a reporter. We are very excited to have a journalist of his caliber join our news team."

So Dart is trading the Pacific Northwest - that would be Seattle - for sunny Sacramento. He has anchored weekday morning and noon newscasts at KIRO 7 for five years.

His other gigs? Atlanta (WSB) and three years with MSNBC. Dart also filled in as a news reader on NBC's "Today Show."

Quite a pedigree. And let's not forget the Emmy and Associated Press awards for reporting and spot news coverage.

His background? Dart is a grad of the University of Texas at Arlington. He's married with three kids, and is into hiking and water sports. That should make for a smooth transition to our fair city's waterways and trails.

His first day behind the anchor desk is Sept. 8.

About Comments

Reader comments on are the opinions of the writer, not The Sacramento Bee. If you see an objectionable comment, click the "report abuse" button below it. We will delete comments containing inappropriate links, obscenities, hate speech, and personal attacks. Flagrant or repeat violators will be banned. See more about comments here.

What You Should Know About Comments on is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)

Here are some rules of the road:

• Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "report abuse" button to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

• Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.

• Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.

• Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand. If you want to discuss an issue with a specific user, click on his profile name and send him a direct message.

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.

• Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.

You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "report abuse" button to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.

If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them, but you may ask our staff to retract one of your comments by sending an email to Again, make sure you note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us your profile name.
