Bob Irzyk Ditches Sports to Anchor Weekends for WINK

Bob Irzyk, former sports director at Oklahoma City ABC affiliate KOCO, will anchor the WINK weekend news with co-anchor Haley Hinds beginning September 30.

Irzyk announced the move to the Fort Myers, FL, CBS affiliate on his facebook page while addressing the switch away from sports, “Yes you read that right..NEWS.. I guess I’m Re-Inventing myself at this stage of my career after doing Sports for 25 years. I’m Very Excited About this new Challenge!”

Irzyk left KOCO earlier this month after three years there. Hinds had been anchoring the WINK news solo since Jeremiah Jacobson left for KARE in November 2012.
