“I’m signing off from WHO 13 at the end of the month. It’s a hard decision to leave the familiar for a new chance in a new state, believe me. This city, state, and station have made me a better person…I’m grateful for it all.”
Simmons joined WHO in April 2021 as a multimedia journalist, a post he previously held at WSLS-TV Ch. 10, an NBC affiliate in Roanoke, Va., Spectrum News and KTTC-TV Ch. 10, an NBC and CW Plus station in Rochester, Minn.
He interned at Chicago-based independent TV station WGN-TV Ch. 9 and the Chicago Sun-Times.
