Rest in Peace, Jim Vance

Good evening, Atlantic Coast Conference fans.

Hope you are having a good weekend where you are.

Let me tell you something – people in the Washington, DC area love them some Jim Vance.  NBC4 news anchor, Jim Vance, was a Washington institution.  Vance was with NBC4 for 45 years as anchor (and 50 years overall)!

Vance passed away today after a brief battle with cancer – he was 75 years old.

I spent almost two decades watching Vance on NBC4 and he is best local news anchor I’ve ever seen.  It’s not close.  Vance was the best friend to his on air team, he was a BIG sports fan, and just an all-around terrific person (he loved the DMV and served his community).  Let’s run through a few segments of his career:
