December 21, 2007 -- The Mid-South's premier newscast and best known investigative reporter are joining forces in an unprecedented move: Investigative reporter Andy Wise is leaving WREG to join WMC-TV and Action News 5.
Wise is a long-time consumer investigative specialist who is instantly recognizable to Mid-South viewers as a no-nonsense, hard-hitting reporter. With Wise joining "The Action News 5 Investigators" there can be little doubt that WMC-TV5 has cornered the market for television investigative reporting.
"For generations, Mid-Southerners have trusted the tradition of broadcast journalism at Action News 5. They grew up watching it. Their parents grew up watching it. Now in the age of HDTV, I am thrilled to be a part of producing ground-breaking segments for WMC-TV and wmctv.com that will set a new standard for consumer protection in this generation," said Action News 5's Andy Wise.
Got that, people? Andy Wise will take his hard-hittin' investigative mojo over to Joe Birch's place. You've been warned.
