They say you can't go home again, but Sheila Brummer is proving that you can go home again....and more than once.
Brummer is returning to KTIV in Sioux City (where I just learned they have the Internet) a station she worked at in the mid 1990's. Brummer is also a native of Sioux City.
She will start on Thanksgiving Day anchoring the evening newscasts alongside Matt Breen.
Let's go to the obligatory sound bites:
"I am so happy to have this opportunity to return to the team at KTIV," said Sheila. "I have worked in bigger cities, but the talent and the enthusiasm at KTIV surpasses them all. Matt Breen could work anywhere in the country and I can't wait to sit next to him each night. I worked with Matt, Ron and Brad when I started my career at KTIV and coming back will be like returning home."
"I am very excited to bring back home to Siouxland a familiar face for our viewers," said KTIV Station Manager, Bridget Breen. "Sheila's dedication, experience, leadership and professionalism will complement our already successful news team. Having Sheila back at KTIV with Matt, Ron and Brad is like having a sibling return home to a close-knit family."
Note: Earlier I wrote that she was headed to Sioux Falls, not Sioux City. So Sioux me!
