Replacing a Legend in DC

Yesterday, FTVLive told you that legendary WRC Anchor Jim Vance is stepping down from the 11PM newscast at the end of the May book. 

Vance is leaving the late newscast, but will stay on the evening shows as he makes the slow Anchor march to retirement.

The station now has announced that current 4 and 5 PM anchor Jim Handly will replace Vance on the late newscast. 

Handly has been at the station since  1992 and served as the first anchor for the weekend editions of News4 Today.

Two years later, he was once again tapped to launch a new newscast, News4 at 4:30, which became News4 at 4 shortly thereafter.

He added News4 at 5 to his anchoring duties in 2006.
