NBC-12 Reporters Are Off to School 

Two of NBC-12's reporters are leaving the newsroom for the classroom, crossing into the world of public relations.

After nearly eight years with the station, reporter and anchor Nicole Bell says she's accepted a job as director of communications and public relations with the Petersburg schools. She starts Dec. 14.

Reporter Andy Jenks, who anchors the Sunday morning newscast, will become Henrico County Schools' director of communications later this month. Jenks, whose beat included Henrico, partly fills a position left vacant by another NBC-12 alumnus, Mychael Dickerson, who left Henrico to become spokesman of Baltimore County Public Schools.

The departures follow reporter Gene Petriello's move in the spring to become communications director at Kings Dominion.

NBC-12 News Director Nancy Kent Smith says Bell and Jenks' positions have been filled, and viewers will meet the new reporters within a few weeks.
