According to a news release from THV11, Adam Bledsoe—the former Public Information Officer for the Faulkner County (AR) Sheriff’s Office—will be joining the station as a feature reporter.
Bledsoe had appeared on the Little Rock CBS television affiliate as the morning show’s Operation Safe Speed officer, updating viewers on traffic, and always signing out with his signature phrase, "Have the best weekend of your life."
THV11 News Director Dave Parker said in the announcement that Bledsoe "seemed to be very comfortable and genuine on camera. We started talking about expanding his television role and now — it’s really happening. Adam is a great guy, he cares about his family, his community and always brings a positive outlook. What more could you ask for?"
