WHO Creates Fake Political Ad Attacking Its Own Anchor

Des Moines NBC affiliate WHO knows how much viewers hate all the political ads taking up precious air time around the country. So the station decided to have a little fun and created its own spoof ad against anchor Dan Winters.

The ad is pretty funny, with lines like “He wants you to think he’s a credible newsman… but his behavior is incredible” and “He turns the news into a one-man comedy routine” and worst of all, “He questions the forecast!” It seems like viewers get the joke, as most of the comments on the Facebook post are positive. Hopefully Winters himself can have a good laugh about it, too…

Anchor John Bachman Retiring From WHO

WHO anchor John Bachman, who has been with the Des Moines NBC-affiliate since 1987, will retire at the end of November.

“I’ve been so fortunate to anchor at WHO-HD for a quarter of a century,” Bachman said, announcing his retirement.  “Now it’s time for my wife Barb and me to visit the grandchildren during the Iowa winters, while viewers will get the opportunity to enjoy Winters–Dan, that is.”

Dan Winters, an anchor and reporter for WHO for the past eight years, will succeed Bachman at the anchor desk.

“John Bachman will forever be a part of the heritage and tradition of WHO,” president and general manager Dale Woods said.  Read more

WHO’s Jannay Towne Tapped for Weekend Mornings

Jannay Towne has been promoted to weekend morning anchor at WHO, the NBC-affiliate in Des Moines.

In her new role, Towne will continue reporting for the 5, 6 and 10 p.m. newscasts. She will debut alongside co-anchor Dan Winters this weekend.

“She’s one of those people that gets the job done every day with a smile and we’re pleased to see her role expand,” WHO news director Rod Peterson said in a statement.

Towne, who has been at WHO for seven years, replaces Elizabeth Klinge as the weekend morning anchor. Klinge left the station earlier this month to pursue a business venture with her husband.
