WZZM Introduces New Evening Anchor Nick LaFave

By Mark Joyella 

When Grand Rapids ABC affiliate WZZM announced the launch of a 5 p.m. newscast in August, Nick LaFave was named co-anchor. This week, the station has begun introducing LaFave to viewers with a series of promos and appearances on WZZM.

LaFave makes his co-anchoring debut September 8, when the new early evening newscast launches:

“Nick is a multi-talented journalist, who effectively communicates on all platforms: on-air, online and social media,” said WZZM 13 President & General Manager, Janet Mason. “There are so many things we like about Nick: his passion for telling good stories, his involvement in community organizations, and his love for his home state of Michigan.”

“Nick is going to be a great fit at WZZM 13. He’s excited to be coming home to Michigan and he’s ready to work hard to get to know our viewers and invest in this community,” said WZZM 13 News Director, Taz Painter.

“This is a dream come true for my wife and me. Friends and family have been asking for years when we were coming back to Michigan. Now we can say, “Next month! And we don’t plan on leaving again! We’re truly blessed,” said Nick LaFave.
