About John Hambrick

John Hambrick (born June 21, 1940) is an American broadcast journalist, reporter, actor, voice over announcer and TV documentary producer. Hambrick began his television career in 1963, at a station in Abilene, Texas. By 1967 he was working at WCPO-TV in Cincinnati when he was recruited by its sister station in Cleveland, WEWS, to become its main news anchor. With much fanfare on December 25, 1967, 27-year-old Hambrick made his Cleveland television debut on WEWS as anchor of the 7:00 and 11:00 P.M. newscasts, which included commentaries by Dorothy Fuldheim. A full promotional advertisement was printed in the both The Plain Dealer and the Cleveland Press newspapers.
