Jim Watkins has been the definition of “laying low” since parting company with WPIX in October.
The accomplished anchor has resurfaced to promote his new project, executive producing a documentary to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Army-Navy Game. Players went directly from the football field to the battlefield in Vietnam.
On a battlefield of a different sort, Watkins tells the Daily News that “it’s been an interesting time,” since ending his 13-year association with Channel 11. “I’m not going to say it’s not a trying time.”
Watkins spent a dozen years as half of the popular anchor tandem, alongside Kaity Tong.
Apparently not popular enough.
