Casey Jones has joined WOOD, the NBC-affiliate in Grand Rapids, as the weekend sports anchor.
Jones, a Grand Rapids native, joins WOOD after a year as a multimedia journalist at WSJV, the Fox-affiliate in South Bend. Prior to that, he was a part-time member of the WOOD sports department.
“When you grow up watching a station and get into the business because of the people who represent that station, it’s really surreal to think that you’re now a part of that pedigree,” Jones said. “I’ve always imagined myself at WOOD TV and it’s a dream come true to be back home.”
