WATERLOO — KWWL moved quickly in finding a replacement for evening news anchor Amanda Goodman.

On Monday, the Waterloo NBC affiliate named Abby Turpin to replace Goodman and join Ron Steele in June as co-anchor of KWWL News at Five, Six and Ten.

Turpin, a native from Grove City, Ohio, was most recently the main anchor at RFD-TV, a nationwide agricultural cable network for two years. Prior to RFD, Turpin anchored and produced for multiple stations across the country, including KOLN in Lincoln, Neb., and WNWO in Toledo, Ohio.
