WBNS Picks WBBM Reporter Kristyn Hartman to Replace Longtime Anchor Andrea Cambern

Last October, longtime WBNS anchor Andrea Cambern announced that she would be stepping down from the anchor desk in May.  And now the Columbus CBS-affiliate has announced who will be taking her place alongside Jerry Revish, on the station’s main anchor team.

Kristyn Hartman, a general assignment reporter with Chicago’s WBBM for the past seven years, is joining WBNS and will take over for Cambern at the beginning of June.

“Kristyn embodies everything that was important to us in our search for a new anchor,” WBNS president and general manager Tom Griesdorn said, in announcing the move.  “An affinity for local news, a desire to impact change in her community, and a personality that will be a leader in our newsroom and a delight for our viewers.” Read more

Obama Sits Down with KMBC, KABC and WBNS

President Obama sat down with three more local stations yesterday, making this the third week running that Obama has granted interviews on the local level. The White House is in a tense battle over the debt ceiling, which has a looming August 2 deadline, and Obama has used the interviews as part of a continued push to localize his message.

Obama was interviewed by Lara Moritz of KMBC (pictured), Dave Ono of KABC and Jerry Revish of WBNS. KABC is the ABC O&O in Los Angeles and KMBC is the ABC affiliate in Kansas City. WBNS is the CBS affiliate in Columbus.

This week’s interviews ran slightly longer than last week, with each station getting about nine minutes. They also took place in a different location — the White House Diplomatic Room. The last several rounds have taken place in the Map Room.

Watch video from each interview after the jump.

Ted ‘Golden Voice’ Williams Tells Columbus’s WBNS Why He Left Rehab

Ted Williams, the homeless man who became an overnight celebrity with his golden voice, sat down with WBNS anchor Jerry Revish for an exclusive interview this week.

In the interview (a segment of which is posted above), Williams explains why he decided to leave rehab–a move that left many wondering if he would be able to take advantage of his much-publicized second chance.

Williams told Revish that his trip to rehab, which was orchestrated and promoted by Dr. Phil, was a “scripted circus.” Ultimately he felt that he could receive better treatment elsewhere. He says that he’s now enrolled in an outpatient program in Los Angeles.
