Bumped Up in Grand Rapids

WOOD (Grand Rapids) has bumped up Reporter Casey Jones (the name of my first dog) to the morning Anchor gig  alongside Emily Linnert.

“We heard from viewers right away that they connected with Casey as a new member of the team. He grew up in West Michigan, went to college here and really understands what’s important to our community,” said WOOD TV8 News Director Dan Boers.

Jones says becoming the newest “Daybreak” anchor is a dream come true.

“I’m thrilled for this chance to deliver the important news and information to viewers in the hometown I grew up in,” he said.

Prior to his time on “Daybreak,” Jones reported and anchored for the news and sports departments at WOOD TV8 and FOX 28 in South Bend, Ind.
