New Hometown Anchor Named to Lead Nightside Newscasts in Columbus

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

It’s a homecoming for WCMH‘s new nightside anchor.

Kerry Charles will become the Columbus, Ohio station’s new 6, 7 and 11 p.m. anchor alongside Colleen Marshall.

Kerry is an award-winning journalist who most recently worked in Atlanta. Prior to that, he spent seven years as a morning anchor in Greensboro, N.C.


“NBC4 has a long history of respected anchors, people who make Columbus a better place to live. I’m confident Kerry will continue in that proud tradition,” said Ken Freedman, vice president and general manager of NBC4.

“During these unprecedented times, I know Kerry will bring an incredible amount of trust and local perspective to our anchor desk. Kerry’s ability to connect and tell unique local stories fits right into NBC4’s goal to be ‘Local 4 You’ every day,” said Denise Eck, news director of NBC4. “Columbus viewers can put June 15 on their calendar. They will be in for a treat with Kerry and Colleen.”

Charles first day on the air will be Monday, June 15.
