Patrick Hussion has joined Greenville, S.C. NBC affiliate WYFF.
WYFF news director Bruce Barkley told TVSpy, Hussion starts on the Saturday anchor desk May 16, but will report and field anchor until then.
Hussion has worked as a anchor for One America News Network. He’s also been the spokesperson for Sears Craftsman tools and shot some spots for them last summer (see the video below). Barkley said the station first met Hussion when he appeared in some station promos a few years back.
But Barkley reminded TVSpy Hussion’s commercial work will not interfere with his new job. “He’s made a successful transition,” said Barkley. “He’s a journalist.”
