WNWO has announced Jim Blue will join the Toledo NBC affiliate as news director and 6 p.m. anchor.
“I’m tremendously excited about rejoining WNWO at a time of incredible renewal at the station and in the community,” said Blue. “We’ve all sacrificed in recent years to achieve a new vitality in our economy and in our city. Now I hope to build upon WNWO’s recent successes and work to provide a fresh, independent journalistic voice in Toledo.”
Blue, who comes to the station from WFFT in Fort Wayne, IN, worked for WNWO once before from 2002 to 2008.
“Jim’s a great leader. He’s got sharp news judgment, great instincts, and a strong moral compass,” said regional news director Kathy Reynolds. “On top of that, he knows this market and as an anchor can put stories in context and explain their impact on our viewers.”
Blue’s first day at WNWO will be next Wednesday, January 23.
