FT. WAYNE ANCHOR SIGNS OFF

WANE weekend anchor Rod Hissong says his contract is up so he’s stepping down and, presumably, out of the business..

“This will be my final newscast at NewsChannel 15 where I spent 8 years,” said Hissong, who joined the station in 2010..

Hissong grew up in Hicksville, Ohio and said it was a life-long dream to anchor at the Nexstar station in Fort Wayne.

This is his second go-round at the station, which he first joined as a camera operator when he was 16.

He left for a time to work at News12 Networks on Long Island and for St. John’s University.

He came back to an on-air job and the assignment of overnight reporter for the station.

If he’s got a destination post-WANE, he’s not sharing it yet.

Here’s his full goodbye
