Three of the most prominent African-American TV anchors – John Lomax, Courtis Fuller and John Lomax – will kick off the downtown Public Library’s “Finding a Voice and Shaping an Identity: African Americans and the Media” series for Black History Month at 2 p.m. Saturday.
Lomax, hired by WKRC-TV (Channel 12) in 1983, has been part of the “Good Morning Cincinnati” newscast since it premiered in 1990.
Fuller, WLWT-TV (Channel 5) weekend anchor, came to Channel 5 in the late 1980s. He took a break from TV to run for Cincinnati mayor after the 2001 riots – losing to former Channel 5 anchor Charlie Luken. He returned to Channel 5 in 2003.
