KARE-Ch. 11 is betting on a Vegas personality to help it win the weekends.

Blake McCoy, a weekend anchor and weekday reporter at KTNV-TV in Las Vegas, will join the local NBC affiliate as co-weekend anchor. He will share the desk with Rena Sarigianopoulos who has been working Saturdays and Sundays since 2009.

Dave Schwartz has been promoted to weekend sports anchor. He previously served as a sports multimedia journalist for the station.

Jerrid Sebesta, who joined the station in 2010, will remain the weekend meteorologist.
