Former Local 6 reporter Todd Jurkowski has been hired as Channel 6’s new weekend anchor. Jurkowski currently is the 4 p.m. anchor/reporter for his hometown NBC affiliate, WBBH in Fort Myers. He’s a Lee County native and worked at the station before he came to Orlando the first time, then returned to the station after he left O-Town.
"It’s a bit melancholy leaving the hometown, having grown up here," Jurkowski told the Fort Myers News-Press. "My long-term goal was to be the main anchor here. I couldn’t get a guarantee of that, so I had to go with something rock solid."
Jurkowski’s last day hasn’t been settled yet. In Orlando, he’ll replace Gerald Reznick, who left the anchor desk because of a vision disorder.
