“’This Is Home’ is more than a tagline. It’s true,” said Evans. “The people at THV11 are family and it’s been an amazing five years. I will miss the people of Arkansas dearly. You can call it southern charm or southern hospitality, but whatever it is: Arkansas and its people have it.”
Evans, who has worked at the Little Rock CBS affiliate since 2016, starts at his new station in mid-June.
“We’re excited Rob is staying within the Tegna family,” said news director Shayla Teater. “He leaves behind a wonderful impact on our station and we’ll miss the fun and energy he brings in the early mornings to our newsroom!”
