WRTV, the Scripps ABC affiliate in Indianapolis, announced the addition of two experienced journalists for its "Good Morning Indiana." Marc Mullins and Beth Vaughn, both veteran anchors and storytellers are joining RTV6 as anchors of “Good Morning Indiana.”
“We are very pleased Marc and Beth are joining our “Good Morning Indiana” team,” said Larry Blackerby, vice president and general manager of WRTV. “Their experiences as morning anchors combined with Marc's natural enthusiasm and passion for reporting and Beth's great energy and community focus are key attributes for a successful morning news team.”
Mullins, a reporter since 1998, has worked at TV stations in Montana, Oregon, and Atlanta, Georgia. He has experience as an anchor, reporter and managing editor. Marc has covered a wide range of stories including the capture and sentencing of Olympic Park bomber, Eric Rudolph, and back to back hurricanes that devastated Florida in 2004.
A graduate of Boston University, Mullins shared that he is looking forward to becoming a Hoosier. “I can’t wait to meet people across Indiana and become part of their morning routine,” Mullins stated. “I will be joining a solid team of experienced journalists and storytellers at RTV6.”
Vaughn started her career in Topeka, Kansas as morning anchor at KSNT/KTMJ-TV. Beth most recently worked at KSHB, the Scripps station in Kansas City, Missouri where she worked as a reporter and anchor.
“Energy and urgency are what our viewers want in a morning newscast,” says Terri Cope-Walton, RTV6 assistant news director. “Beth Vaughn delivers both. Working with co-anchor Marc Mullins, our team will offer a fresh take on morning news for central Indiana viewers.”
“My husband and I can’t wait to meet the great people of Indianapolis,” says Vaughn. “We are both Midwest natives with Midwest values, so Indiana is a perfect fit! I am eager to join Marc and the rest of the RTV6 News team in bringing viewers the stories, weather and traffic that matters most in the mornings.”
Beth is a graduate of the University of Illinois. She has been active in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Marc and Beth will join “Good Morning Indiana” beginning in January.
