Jay Plyburn has joined KFSM, the CBS affiliate in Fort Smith, Ark.
“I’m thankful for the opportunity and very excited to be part of this team,” Plyburn told TVSpy in an email.
Plyburn most recently worked at rival KHBS-KHOG, where he was a reporter. FTVLive reports he left the station in March after an incident covering a lightning storm, which he called “the single most frightening experience of my life.”
At KFSM, Plyburn will co-anchor the morning newscast alongside Heather Lewis and meteorologist Joe Pennington.
