Fort Worth-based NBC5 is adding Vince Sims as a weekend evening co-anchor and weekday reporter.

He’ll be arriving from Atlanta’s WGCL-TV (CBS46) at the end of this month after a five-year stay at the CBS station, where Sims has been a reporter and fill-in anchor. NBC5 hasn’t yet officially announced his hiring.

“I’m so excited for this opportunity,” Sims says on his Facebook page. “Dallas is a great move for me professionally, going to market #5 . . . God is ordering my steps to bigger things and I stand on faith that this is the right move for me.”

Sims’ departure from WGCL was first reported by Rodney Ho of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The Arkansas native and graduate of the University of Central Arkansas previously worked for TV stations in Pittsburgh, Louisiana and Oklahoma according to his CBS46 bio.

The station says he “enjoys dining out, playing tennis, playing pool, swimming and just socializing with friends. His weird hobby is collecting matchbooks.”
