WPXI-TV reporter and fill-in anchor Vince Sims has accepted a new job at WGCL, the CBS affiliate in Atlanta. Mr. Sims, who had worked at WPXI since June 2003, grew up in Arkansas and had been looking to move back to the South, according to Mike Oliveira, WPXI news director.
Mr. Sims' last day on air here was Friday. He is expected to start as a reporter in Atlanta by the end of the month, WGCL news director Lane Michaelsen said.
"He is a fantastic reporter and a great guy," Mr. Oliveira said. "We were fortunate to have him with us for 11 years."
