Weekend Anchor Eric Mansfield Leaving WKYC

Longtime WKYC anchor-reporter Eric Mansfield is leaving the Cleveland NBC-affiliate for a job at Kent State University, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Mansfield joined WKYC in 1994 as an Akron reporter. He will continue to be a weekend anchor and weekday reporter for the station through May.

Mansfield, who will join Kent State over the Summer as executive director of media relations, said he wants to spend more time with his family as his kids get older.

“Nobody in television works 9 to 5. You work nights, you work weekends, you work holidays,” he said. “After 20 years of that, I wanted to have more time with my family and reduce the stress.”
