The National Association of Broadcasters is flying its NAB flag at half staff in honor of WRC legend Jim Vance who died Saturday.
The NAB is headquartered in Washington, D.C. where Vance was anchor at the NBC station for 45 years. Other Washington, D.C. institutions, athletes, politicos and even WRC’s competition are remembering Vance who died after a battle with cancer.
Jim Vance brought warmth and dignity to every newscast. A DC news legend and a cherished member of our NBC family. We'll miss you Jim.
