Congratulations to CBK Media Management client Joe Sam on jumping 81 markets to become an Entertainment/Feature Reporter at WSYX (ABC) in Columbus, OH (Market #34). Joe was previously a News Anchor/Reporter at WILX (NBC) in Lansing, MI (Market #115).
Before coming to WILX, Joe was the popular Morning News Anchor/Reporter at his hometown station KLAF (CBS) in Lafayette, LA. While working at KLAF, Joe also worked as the Communications Director for CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates). This organization and its cause is close to Joe’s heart as his two-year old nephew was a victim of child abuse. Prior to KLAF, Joe was a Morning Reporter/Anchor at WTXL (ABC) in Tallahassee, FL. Joe’s on-air work has earned him several awards, including Top News Anchor by the Acadiana Profile organization.
Joe grew up not far from New Orleans in Opelousas, Louisiana. He graduated from Southern University A & M in Baton Rouge, LA with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Mass Communications. He also has a Masters Degree from Grand Canyon University. Joe is a proud member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Incorporated, the National Association of Black Journalists, NAACP, and National Society of Leadership and Success. #TeamCBK
