In several markets, and few in networks, there are a few anchor teams, which consists of a female and a minority (black, hispanic, native-american). This trend started in the 1970s, where the need for women was in greater demand, and blacks no longer just worked behind the scenes. WJLA (ABC) in Washington, DC - It began during the 1990s. The anchor team and Paul Berry and Kathleen Mathews. Matthews is white female, and Berry is a black man, and they co-anchored the 6pm and 11pm newscast. Before Matthews retirement from news business, she had other black males co-anchoring with her. The same deal at rival WRC (NBC) Washington DC. It started in the early 1990s, where Jim Vance (african-american) and Doreen Gentzler (female) anchors the news at 6pm and 11pm. Jim has gone through many co-anchor changes, and they were all male (including Marty Levin pre-KNSD San Diego), but Gentzler was the first female co-anchor Vance has ever had. WTEV CBS-47 in Jacksonville, FL - Paige Kelton (white woman) and Mark Spain (black male) anchor several nightly newscasts. They do more than anchor the 5, 6, and 11 newscasts on CBS-47. They also anchor the 10pm news together on WTEV's sister station FOX-30 WAWS. WVTM (NBC) Birmingham, Alabama - There was an anchor team for the newscasts at 5pm, 6pm and 10pm. That anchor duo was Mike Moore (black man) and Theresa Durden (white female), and they anchored the three nightly newscasts together. KOAA (NBC) in my hometown of Colorado Springs, CO - I recall seeing the anchor team on the weekends during the early 1990s. The anchor team was Blake Chenault (black anchor who's now at WUAB in Cleveland) and Robin Adair (whatever happened to her?). They anchored the weekend news during the early-90s.
