It is a return to the stations for Slinger, who worked as a nightside reporter before joining KNXV in Phoenix in 2011. At WSYX-WTTE, he anchors the weekend morning newscasts, which launched last weekend, alongside Maria Durant and meteorologist Phil Kelley.
“I’m thrilled to return to Columbus and ABC6/Fox28,” Slinger told TVSpy in an email. “Our lives are here. Ohio is home. There’s no place like it. The GOOD DAY COLUMBUS brand is one of the most recognizable in the market, and getting to be part of the weekend edition’s launch is incredibly exciting.”
