Nate VanSickle



Nate VanSickle is happy to be back in Ohio.

The Delaware native and Bowling Green State University graduate most recently worked at WINK-TV in Fort Myers, Fla., before returning to the Buckeye State.

VanSickle started as a photojournalist at WTOL-TV in Toledo in 2005.  His first week there, he covered a riot sparked by a Nazi rally.

Then, in Fort Myers, VanSickle said one of his highlights was when he shot a manatee release into the Gulf of Mexico.

Now, VanSickle said that he is fortunate to return home to work for the station that he grew up watching, WBNS-10TV.

Among his 10TV highlights are covering a tractor-trailer that overturned, sending cows onto the freeway.

"I was able to catch up with one of them," VanSickle said.  "I ended up chasing the loose cow for an hour-and-a-half as police and a cowboy tried to lasso it in."

While he's not working, VanSickle enjoys competing in marathons, camping and reading Dean Koontz novels.
