Columbus Morning Anchor Moves to Evenings

By Kevin Eck 

Mike Jackson, morning anchor for WCMH in Columbus, Ohio, has been moved up to evenings.

Jackson, who has been with the NBC affiliate since 1994, will join Colleen Marshall. He replaces Cabot Rea who retired in December.

“Mike is a leader in the NBC4 newsroom and in this community,” said Ken Freedman, WCMH vp and gm. “His news judgment and experience make him the perfect journalist to lead our effort.”

Weekend sports anchor Matt Barnes will replace Jackson on the morning show.
