Multi-market Mourning For WVIR-29 Anchor Once In Dayton


DAYTON, OHIO — From 1987 to 2002, Ken Jefferson was a household name for many viewers across the “Gem City” and much of this corner of the Buckeye State.

Jefferson was an award-winning reporter and anchor at Cox Media Group‘s CBS affiliated WHIO-7, before taking jobs at ABC affiliated WWSB-7 in Sarasota, Fla., and at NBC affiliated WVIR-29 in Charlottesville, Va. — a job he took for family reasons.

Media and viewers in these three markets are now mourning the sudden loss of Jefferson, who died during the weekend of March 3 after a brief and unexpected illness.
