St. Petersburg-raised Mark Wilson will take over Dec. 31 for departing anchor Kathy Fountain on WTVT-Ch. 13's 5 p.m. newscast, capping a 19-year stretch of featuring two female anchors in that time slot. Wilson, 40, will continue anchoring the 11 p.m. NewsEdge broadcast after he joins anchor Denise White on the 5 p.m. newscast. "I came here (in 1997) with one goal, to anchor a newscast with my dad," said Wilson, son of WTVT's top male anchor John Wilson. "But things here have progressed beyond my wildest dreams."
