He’s a fill-in no more.

Ben Handelman is permanently moving to the Monday through Friday weekday anchor desk at Tribune-soon-to-be-Nexstar’s WITI in Milwaukee

He’s been coming off the bench since March when Brad Hicks departed the station.

Handelman has been a reporter and weekend anchor at the station since 2011.

He’s honored.

“From wood tick racing to the Sherman Park unrest, over the last 8+ years, I’ve had the privilege of telling some of Wisconsin’s most important and unique stories.  I am honored to continue the legacy of incredible storytelling from the anchor desk at a station nationally recognized for its excellence,” says (according to the press release) Handelman.
