Greg Coy - HIRED AT WJCL as Main Anchor
Greg Coy is the Main Anchor and Lead investigative reporter for the Hearst Station, WJCL in Savanah, GA. What is the best way to describe veteran and award-winning anchor reporter Greg Coy? He is always on the pursuit of the big story, the better live shot, the perfect way to anchor a newscast, and the best way to tell a story to the viewers. A recent story Greg filed was held up as an example of a COVID story that is being used as an example within the Cox station group. The simplicity of the written explanation of how it works is a demonstrative storytelling technique that is not to be forgotten! That came from consultants at Magid and pushed out to all of the Cox's reporting teams. It explains why Greg has worked in various major markets to learn and then apply his talent where there are opportunities for professional development.
His greatest talents might be his leadership skills to mentor young journalists on staff with advice and a strong work ethic. He understands the need to grow with the industry and leveraged his journalistic skills to become an anchor, host of a regional network show, co-manager of the broadcast and provider of content for online media. What drives him? Meeting complete strangers, gaining their respect, telling a story that stands out in a newscast are not challenges to him but opportunities. The location could be either Frankfurt, Germany, the local farm or a media junket for a visiting celebrity, each is important to him and the viewer. It is reflected in his work and personality on and off camera. “I have the best job in the world. Why not love it unconditionally?”
