Jim Vance (born January 11 1942 in Ardmore, Pennsylvania) is an American television news anchor. He originally studied to be a teacher and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Secondary Education from Cheyney University in Cheyney, Pennsylvania. Vance currently anchors the 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. editions of News4 on WRC-TV in Washington, DC. He has worked for WRC-TV since 1969, and in 1972, he became the station's main co-anchor, as one of the first African Americans to serve in this position at any American television station. Between 1972 and 1976, he worked as co-anchor with Glenn Rinker at WRC-TV-4. Between 1976 and 1980, Vance co-anchored with Sue Simmons, a pairing that resulted in one of the first, if not the first, African-American co-anchors of a major market newscast.
