Dawn Sterling

Sinclair ABC affiliates WICS-WICD Springfield, Ill. has hired Dawn Sterling. She will join Stacey Skrysak on the evening news desk. With a background and extensive experience in Central Illinois, “Sterling is bringing a fresh perspective and a wealth of knowledge to our viewers.”

Sterling is a graduate of Central Michigan University. She began her news career in Binghamton, N.Y., then worked at WTHI Terre Haute, In. She also worked for Sinclair-owned WSMH Flint, Mich., before moving to Central Illinois in 2004

“Our goal is to take our local newscasts to the next level. What better way to do that than to bring in an anchor with years of experience in the local market. I see this as a win, not only for us, but for Central Illinois viewers,” says WICS-WRSP News Director Heather Nodine.

“It’s rare that you get to hire someone with Dawn’s skills and abilities with two decades of experience in the market” says WICS-WRSP General Manager Robert Richardson.

Sterling begins on-air Jan. 15 and will co-anchor the news at 5, 6, and 10 p.m. with Skrysak. Sterling will also make appearances on the Fox Illinois newscasts at 5:30 and 9 p.m.
