Local Newscaster You Most Want to Return to the Airwaves

Aaron Gilchrist from NBC-12

Guys, it’s been a year. You’ve gotta let go. But we understand. Despite his turning 31 recently, Aaron Gilchrist was with NBC-12 for 12 years before landing a weekend anchor and reporter slot at Washington’s NBC-4. “You get a lot less sleep up here,” he says of the high-intensity news town. But he does miss you, too, he says. “Because it’s home, and that’s the difference.” Will he return? He answers gracefully, saying he’s happy with what he’s doing now and tries “to stay flexible.”
