Colin Mayfield Leaves WLWT

In 2012, Colin Mayfield graduated with a BS in Marketing and Broadcast Journalism from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Before that, he was a reporter and anchor at Marquette University Television and anchored MUTV’s premiere news show.

His career started in the small rural town of Wausau, Wisconsin, when he joined WSAW-TV’s NewsChannel 7 in 2012 as an anchor and reporter. Before moving to Cincinnati, Mayfield worked at WLKY News in Louisville, Kentucky, as a morning anchor and community reporter from 2013 to 2017. In January 2017, he made Cincinnati his home when he joined the WLWT news team.

However, in a few days, the anchor’s regular viewers won’t be able to see him in the morning broadcasts. Colin Mayfield is leaving WLWT for a new opportunity in Charlotte. He has accepted a position at WCNC-TV and will be joining the team of anchors Fred Shropshire, Vanessa Ruffes, Carolyn Bruck, and meteorologist Brad Panovich.
