Daily SAll-Star

Today's SAll-Star is a local hero: Jim Vance.
On a scale from 1 to Awesome for newscasters, Jim Vance is off the charts. He's a pioneer; one of the first African-American anchors in any major market. In addition, he's one the most professional, classy, and forthright individuals to ever deliver the news. His on-air demeanor is calm and cool but he's not afraid to crack a joke every now and then (see the video below with his good friend, the recently retired George Michael, a legend in his own right). Really, it's no surprise that NBC4 obliterates all local news competition for the 6 PM slot in the ratings.

Keep on being awesome in every way, Jim. And we'll keep on watching.
