WANE Anchor’s Contract Expires, He Steps Down

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

WANE weekend anchor Rod Hissong says his contract is up so he’s stepping down.

“This will be my final newscast at NewsChannel 15 where I spent 8 years,” he said during his goodbye.

Hissong grew up in Hicksville, Ohio and said it was a life long dream to anchor at the CBS affiliate in Fort Wayne. He started as a camera operator when he was 16, left for a few years and came back as an on-air personality.

It is unclear where Hissong is headed next. You can watch his full goodbye below.
