GRAND FORKS, N.D. - WDAZ announced that Terry Dullum has been promoted to the 6 p.m. anchor at WDAZ News. Terry Dullum has been with WDAZ for 39 years, first as a reporter and then as the 5 p.m. anchor.
Dullum will continue to anchor the 5 p.m. news in addition to anchoring the 6 p.m. news. Stacie Van Dyke and Dullum will co-anchor both newscasts.
“I’m very grateful to have worked so closely with Terry and had him as a mentor for a year now,” Van Dyke said. “So happy to have him move to the 6.”
“Terry is one of the most amazing people I have ever worked with in my nearly 20 years in the news business,” said WDAZ News Director Julie Moravchik. “We are lucky to have someone on staff with his level of experience and commitment to the people of the Grand Forks area. It is truly an honor to promote him to the 6:00 anchor position.”
Dullum is a North Dakota native and a graduate of the University of North Dakota. He has been with WDAZ News since 1975. He was part of a news team that won a national Edward R. Murrow award for coverage of the Red River Valley flood of 1997. His popular video essays, the Dullum File, are seen the last Friday of each month on WDAZ News at 6. He is also a popular speaker throughout the region.
Victor Correa joins News at Ten
WDAZ also announced that reporter Victor Correa has been promoted to the 10 p.m. anchor. He will co-anchor with Stacie Van Dyke.
“I’m very honored to have been given the opportunity,” Correa said. “It has been an honor working as a reporter for WDAZ and serving the amazing people of this area. I’m ready to step up to the challenge, in my new role as the 10 p.m. anchor.”
“So excited to work with Victor and for more viewers to get to know his infectious personality,” Van Dyke said.
“This is an exciting time at WDAZ TV, I am thrilled to be promoting Victor Correa to 10pm anchor,” Moravchik added. “Victor is a hard worker, a positive person and he’s earned this position. It’s always nice when you can promote within.”
Correa spent his life in a military family, living all over the world, including Nevada, Texas, New Mexico, Guam, Idaho, Japan and North Dakota. Before graduating from the University of North Dakota with a degree in communication, Correa interned at Studio One, a student-run news station at UND as a news reporter and associate producer.
Moravchik said they had a number of applicants from across the nation.
“But I looked out into my own newsroom and saw two of the greatest people I have ever worked with in the business and they are already right here at WDAZ,” she said. “So it was a thrill to promote both Terry and Victor to the positions I feel they earned. I know they will continue to serve our community well and make the viewers proud.”
Dullum will take over as the 6 p.m. anchor and Victor will begin his job as the 10 p.m. anchor beginning April 14th.
