WCNC (Channel 36) anchor Dion Lim is headed for Tampa’s WTSP, where she’ll anchor the 5 and 5:30p.m. newscasts and report for the 11 p.m. one, she said Friday.

She’ll begin her new job at the end of the month at the CBS affiliate, ranked 14th among markets by Nielsen for 2012-13. Charlotte ranked 25th.

Lim's final broadcast at WCNC was Friday.

Lim, who joined WCNC in 2010 and has anchored the 5 and 11 p.m. shows, said she hadn’t sought the change. “I had anticipated staying in Charlotte for the rest of my career,” said Lim, 29, but “I went down to visit and the opportunity was great.”

Her husband, a professional poker player, will appreciate the chance to play sports daily in the warmth, she said, and “obviously, Florida has some crazy news. It sounds pretty exciting.”
