NBC4 anchor Colleen Marshall is often referred to as the queen of Columbus TV. “Technology has obviously changed, but at the core what we do every day– we still tell stories, we still try to connect with people in the community, we try to stay on top of what’s important in the lives of our viewers, so at the core, we’re still local for you. That hasn’t changed, but technology has significantly changed the way we do our jobs.”

NBC4 reporter Tylar Bacome has worked for WCMH two separate times. The first time was in the 1990s. “I made the mistake of telling Gail [Hogan] that I grew up watching her, and she clobbered me over the head with my scripts. Now, payback is a you-know-what because Matt [Barnes] said that to me when I started [back] here. I clobbered him over the head with my scripts.”

NBC4’s news operations manager Phil Schneid started at WCMH on December 7, 1985. “I did 9-11. I went to work for WNBC which was our sister station at the time. I went up there to work at ground zero and at the family center during 9-11.” 

Steve Wainfor has been with WCMH for nearly 33 years. Steve has been all over the country and as far away as Athens, Greece,  covering events for NBC4 as a special projects producer and photographer. “We had done a lottery system for photographers to be on premise to shoot the Lucasville standoff, and the day that they chose me was the day that they gave up.”

Engineer Mark Saunders has been with WCMH since the 1970s. Although behind the scenes most of the time, Saunders, or “Alpo Man” has been in ‘Sports Illustrated’ more times than some popular athletes. “The biggest thing back then is that TV was such a big deal. We were one of the three commercial broadcasters in town.”
