“IT WAS ALWAYS MY GOAL TO ONE DAY WORK IN THE CLEVELAND MARKET”

Ohio natives feel that way.

And some of us who once worked in Cleveland can understand that feeling.

So Jay Crawford, former ESPN reporter and anchor, is joining Tegna’s WKYC later this year to be the station’s 5 PM anchor.

Even though the program doesn’t debut until next January, Crawford will come on board in the fall.

Of course he’s thrilled.

“When I began my TV career it was always my goal to one day work in the Cleveland market,” Crawford said. “After 15 years of living in the northeast and covering sports at the network level, I am absolutely thrilled to be coming home to work in and cover the community I love.”
