Toledo Anchor Makes the Jump to Another Ohio Station

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

Andrew Kinsey, a staple in Toledo, Ohio, local news, is leaving for a bigger market next month.

The WTOL anchor is heading to Columbus, Ohio, to join Tegna’s sister station, WBNS.

“I’m extremely honored and excited about this new position,” Kinsey said.


Kinsey joined the station in 2014 in the thick of the Toledo water crisis. He’s worked the morning show, and in his most recent position anchored the 5 p.m., 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. news programs.

“Not only has he anchored our nightly newscasts, but he’s also created a trust in the community with his nonprofit Andrew Cares, helping underprivileged children have a mentor in their lives such as Andrew,” said WTOL news director Lauren Weppler.

Kinsey still has some time in Toledo. His last day at the station is Oct. 9.
