Anchor Brad Reed Leaving Fox News Edge

“Thank you for inviting me into your homes each night and trusting me to do the job I have loved so much.”
FOX 24 -- News Edge main anchor and executive producer Brad Reed announced his departure from the Emmy Award winning newscast Thursday night.

Reed has been the primary talent behind the solo anchor show for the past five years. Together with NWA Weather Authority Chief Meteorologist Dan Skoff, and the Razorback Nation’s Aaron Peters, Reed helped develop a 9:00 p.m. and, most recently, a 5:30 p.m. local news offering for the people of Northwest Arkansas and the River Valley. Reed covered the entire gambit of content during his tenure on Fox News Edge. He interviewed people like U.S. Senator and Presidential Candidate John McCain, actor Tom Cruise, American Idol winner Taylor Hicks, country music sensations East of Eden and animal expert Jack Hannah. He traveled to Los Angeles to bring live coverage of the 'American Idol' finale for three years in a row, as well as traveling with the Arkansas Razorbacks to the 2009 College World Series run and the 2012 Cotton Bowl win.
 
With a heart for service, Reed utilized the Fox News Edge to help hundreds of local non-profits raise awareness, showcase dozens of local artists and performers, highlight countless local events and keep his viewers informed about what was happening in their communities.
 
"For the last five years I have had the privilege of working as a news anchor for Fox 24.  The job allowed me to meet and interview some of the most interesting people in Northwest Arkansas, and serve dozens of non-profit organizations in the community that are near and dear to my heart.  I've worked with some of the most talented people in TV news, and will cherish the relationships I have been able to develop through this job.  Thank you for inviting me into your homes each night, and for trusting me to do the job I have loved so much,” Reed said following Thursday's announcement.
 
A Springdale native, Reed says he plans to stay in Northwest Arkansas and focus all of his professional attention on medicine as he undertakes the long and difficult path to a medical degree.

Reed’s final newscast on the Fox News Edge desk will be Wednesday, May 14th.
