Where Are They Now

Former KSLA reporter Bob Burns is in the spotlight today.

The Emmy nominated newsman started out reporting in the Capital City back in the late 1980's. During his seven years in Tallahassee, Burns covered some of the most memorable and entertaining stories ever seen in North Florida. His face and voice became synonomous with the down-home nature of life in Tallahassee. Since then he's covered news in virtually every major city in the state. Burns has also recently anchored and reported in West Virginia and Louisiana.

Burns left Tallahassee for South Florida in 1996. The gypsy journalist spent several years roaming Florida as a statewide correspondent for Florida's News Channel. Burns then moved north to West Virginia, where he was the main anchor and feature reporter in Clarksburg. From West Virginia, Burns headed to Shreveport, Louisiana, home to Barksdale Air Force Base and nearby the Joint Readiness Training Center at Ft. Polk. Burns was onhand at Barksdale as the President sought safehaven there on September 11th, 2001.

What's Bob up to these days? Bob is a weekday anchor at WTXL in Tallahassee, Florida.

"Gypsy journalist"? Sounds like a badly named sweeps series.
