Abstract:

Broadcast journalist Jim Vance was born on January 10, 1942 in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. He earned his B.S. degree in secondary education from Cheyney State College in 1964. In 1968, Vance accepted a position as a reporter for WKBS-TV in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The following year, he joined WRC-TV NBC 4 in Washington, D.C., where he worked for over forty-five years. Vance served as co-anchor with Glenn Rinker between 1972 and 1976, and co-anchored with Sue Simmons from 1976 to 1980. Vance and Simmons were one of the first African American co-anchors of a major market newscast. In 1989, Vance co-anchored with Doreen Gentzler; they became the longest-running anchor team in Washington, D.C. Vance received seventeen Emmy Awards and was honored as “Washingtonian of the Year.” He was inducted into the National Association of Black Journalists Hall of Fame in 2007.
