Longtime Jackson, MS, anchor Bert Case makes his return to ABC affiliate WAPT.
“Having one of Mississippi’s finest journalists join 16 WAPT News means we will serve our viewers better than ever,” WAPT GM Stuart Kellogg said in a statement. “I’ve known Bert for more than 30 years and I’m so excited that he is now on OUR team!”
Case started as news director at WAPT in 1970 before leaving for cross-town NBC affiliate WLBT in 1974. He left WLBT in January, months shy of his 40 year anniversary.
Case will do investigative reports for the station’s evening newscasts. He will also serve as consumer advocate.
