Ben Swann has been named anchor at Meredith CBS affiliate WGCL.
Swann left Cincinnati’s WXIX in 2013 to focus on his website Truth in Media. It was there he announced his move back to local TV.
“To be given an opportunity to be an Anchor in a city like Atlanta is a chance of a lifetime. I can’t wait to get there and get started,” said Swann. “The beauty of this agreement is that I will continue to oversee and contribute to the Truth in Media project, TruthinMedia.com and will be unveiling my own projects, as well as continuing to press hard and demand answers to tough questions in one of the largest television markets in the country.”
Swann also has a facebook page, where his message appeals to everyone from libertarians to truthers. The “about us” section on his website says “Mainstream media has failed to provide an honest representation of current and past events, and the public is fully aware. Your news or vision of current events at home or across the globe must not be leveraged.”
Swann started his career at KFOX in El Paso.
