Ross Jones Says He’s Going Back to WXYZ

By Kevin Eck 

Ross Jones is returning to E.W. Scripps Detroit ABC affiliate WXYZ.

“Candidly, I’ve felt the tug to return more than a few times since I left in 2015, often while the big stories were playing out,” said Jones. “But it’s the ones that we all nearly missed that ultimately convinced me it’s time to come home.”

Jones said he would start at WXYZ in February. He left the station in 2015 to work for Scripps’ Washington Bureau.

“I could not be happier to return to Channel 7 where, as we’re often reminded, the most important thing isn’t to be the best station in Detroit, but for Detroit,” he said. “See you all soon.”
