O’Connor left Jacksonville’s WTEV-WAWS in 2010 after eight years as an anchor. Beginning in January, he will co-anchor WSFA’s 5 p.m. newscast alongside Valerie Lawson and the first half of the 4 p.m. newscast alongside Sally Pitts. He will also report for the 10 p.m. newscast.
“I am excited and know John is excited about coming on board,” news director Scott Duff said in a statement. “He brings a wealth of experience, strong journalistic skills and I feel his addition will benefit our newscasts and our viewers.”
