Simon Shaykhet is joining WXYZ, the ABC affiliate in Detroit, on September 9.
The Detroit native has previously worked at rival WJBK and WSYM in Lansing. Most recently, he was the spokesperson and public affairs specialist for the Detroit field office of the FBI.
“I am thrilled to once again bring you the stories that make a difference,” Shaykhet said in a statement. “Taking action and fighting for your rights is something that I look forward to doing each and every day in my reporting. I am honored to be able to stand up for Metro Detroiters and continue to serve the community I call home.”
