Jessob Reisbeck Joins WITI as Morning Anchor

Jessob Reisbeck has joined Milwaukee FOX affiliate WITI as morning anchor. Reisbeck replaces Shawn Patrick who left the Milwaukee FOX affiliate Friday, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Reisbeck, who worked at Fresno, CA, FOX affiliate KMPH, gained fame as the reporter whose interview with Kai, the hatchet wielding hitchhiker, went viral. Kai is now facing murder charges in New Jersey.

The Journal Sentinel reports Reisbeck’s first broadcast on WITI will be Wednesday. Reisbeck signed off from KMPH June 2, telling viewers he was returning to his roots in Wisconsin. You can watch the video of his goodbye after the jump.

This morning, Reisbeck tweeted that former Green Bay Packer Donald Driver was at WITI, “Yea, I’m bitter I don’t start until tomorrow! #badtiming @donald_driver80 on set w Kim & Nicole @fox6wakeup”

He attached this picture:

Here is Reisbeck’s goodbye at KMPH.
