Jerry Carnes Named Interim ‘Commuter Dude’ at WXIA in Atlanta

jerry carnesJerry Carnes will temporarily shift into the morning transportation reporter role at WXIA, the NBC affiliate in Atlanta, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution‘s Rodney Ho reports.

WXIA’s former “Commuter Dude,” John Gerard, recently moved to sister station WATL as the promotion manager. Carnes, who has worked at WXIA since 1988, will be the “Commuter Dude” at least through the end of the year, according to a post on his Facebook page.

“I will be working early mornings working to fix commuter problems– potholes, missing traffic signs, awkward intersections, and the like. I’ll be holding public officials accountable when these issues linger,” Carnes wrote. “I’m nervous and enthusiastic and eager to get started.”

Ho reports WXIA is in the middle of a nationwide search for a permanent replacement.
