Shannon Sims is joining Milwaukee NBC affiliate WTMJ as a weekend anchor.
Sims comes from Cincinnati, where she has been freelancing as a morning reporter and fill-in anchor at WXIX. She was released from her contract at WKEF-WRGT in Dayton after a year as the station’s main anchor in January.
Sims told TVSpy she is looking forward to working with the “winning team” of journalists, photographers and producers at WTMJ.
“At this point of my career moving to Milwaukee and working at TMJ4 to hone my skills as a reporter and command anchor seems like the perfect move,” Sims wrote in an email.
