Blanks worked in Lansing, Michigan and Rochester, New York before joining WVEC in 1997. He started working at WTNH on Monday, just in time to cover the blizzard.
“Over his 20 years of covering the region, LaSalle has highlighted the heart of Hampton Roads in a way no other station or talent has done before,” said WVEC GM Kari Jacobs. “He has been a fantastic work colleague who truly cares about this community and every individual featured in the stories he tells. We sincerely thank him for his excellence and dedication to Hampton Roads and 13NewsNow.”
