Subject: New Weekend Morning Anchor
I’m very excited to announce that we’ve hired Rob Nelson as our new weekend morning co-anchor and reporter. Rob is currently a correspondent for ABC News, where he also anchored World News Now and America This Morning for three years. He’s anchored breaking news coverage of the death of Osama bin Laden, the earthquake and tsunami in Japan and the movie theater massacre in Aurora, Colorado. Rob got his start in journalism as a newspaper reporter at the Times-Picayune in New Orleans. That is where he transitioned into television as a reporter and anchor at WWL-TV. Rob is from South Jersey and graduated from the University of North Carolina.
Rob will join our great weekend morning team after the first of the year. I know you will join me in welcoming Rob to the WABC and Eyewitness News family.
