>Update: WBBJ has released an official announcement on Baker’s hire. He will start May 14 in Jackson, the town where his parents went to college and his uncle and grandmother have previously lived.

“I am excited to welcome Mr. Baker back to his roots and believe that his enthusiasm and experience will be a great service not only to 7 Eyewitness News, but to our entire community,” WBBJ vice president and general manager Jerry Moore said.
