NEW YORK (AP) — It’s about to be a family affair at 30 Rock for NBC News anchor Lester Holt and his son, Stefan Holt, who soon will be anchoring a weekday newscast on the network’s New York station, it was announced Tuesday.

Holt, 29, will start at WNBC in April, co-anchoring a newly launched afternoon newscast aired from 30 Rockefeller Plaza, the storied NBC headquarters from where “NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt” originates.

Stefan Holt comes from NBC-owned Chicago outlet WMAQ, where he has been a reporter and anchor for five years. Before that, he spent three years at the ABC affiliate in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Lester Holt joined NBC News in 2000 after 14 years in Chicago anchoring for CBS-owned WBBM. He took over “Nightly News” anchor duties from Brian Williams last year.
