In Cincinnati, Sports Anchor Zach Wells Happy to Finish Year with Rival Station

Cincinnati sports anchor Zach Wells has had an up and down 2010 so he’s more than happy to be ending the year with a full-time position, although its with the crosstown rival of the station he began the year with.

“Most of 2010 was a tough year for me, a real challenging year,” Wells told the Cincinnati Enquirer recently.

Wells began the year as the weekend sports anchor for Cincinnati Fox-affiliate WXIX but was shown the door in June when station management decided to eliminate his position.  Not knowing what his next career move would be, Wells had a stroke of luck later that summer when CBS-CW duopoly WKRC fired Tara Pachmayer, who was the weekend sports anchor for WKRC’s CW sub-channel.

Wells was picked up by WKRC for a probationary period. “They never promised me anything,” Wells said of his WKRC tryout this summer.

The station was impressed by Wells and they decided to officially bring him on-board in September.  As Wells recounts his rocky year, he looks towards the future.  “I just want to keep growing and getting better,” he told the Cincinnati Enquirer.
