Jessica Dean, the TV anchor who’s spent her last three years at Channel 4, is heading up east. She announced on Twitter:
I am thrilled to announce I’ll be the new evening anchor @CBSPhilly with @chrismayphilly. It’s been a joy to spend three years
May is a former KATV anchor. Dean’s father-in-law, Clinton School Dean Skip Rutherford, commented on Twitter:
Small world. @JessicaDean to co-anchor CBS Philadelphia station with @ChrisMayPhilly. We live next door to Chris’s parents in Little Rock
And to complete the round of tweets, here’s Blake Rutherford:
Very excited and proud for @jessicadean. Named co-anchor of the evening news at CBS Philly. Thanks to the great team @KARK4News
PS — I asked Blake about his own plans.
Fortunately, I will continue in my current role as VP of the McLarty Companies. With business interests in New York and DC, Philadelphia is convenient and accessible to both. As you would expect, I will be back and forth to Arkansas as often as business requires.
