“Jessob knows Milwaukee and its viewers. I respected him as a competitor because of his ability to connect with people and handle all different types of stories.” said Kent Harrell, News Director at CBS 58.
Anne Brown, General Manager at CBS 58, has worked with Reisbeck previously and said “I’ve seen his positive energy and work ethic in action and know he’ll be a terrific addition to our newsroom.”
