Omaha Reporter Joining Cleveland Station as Anchor

By Kevin Eck 

DaLaun Dillard is joining WEWS in Cleveland as an anchor and reporter.

Beginning on Tuesday, he’ll join Courtney Gousman as co-anchor of the ABC affiliate’s 5 p.m. newscast.

“I would introduce myself as a journalist who is passionate about the work he does,” Dillard told “I’m passionate about getting answers and getting results but also someone who is still a human being and will never forget the human aspect of storytelling. I think so often individuals forget that it’s still important to be human and show that side of yourself.”


Dillard comes from KETV in Omaha, Neb., and he has also worked at WMBD in Peoria, Ill. He replaces Frank Wiley, who left WEWS in February.
