TV Anchor Chase Evans Joins Community Relations

Posted March 1, 2021 in Your Community by Mary Smith

Chase Evans, a TV reporter and anchor in the Youngstown area, has joined the City of Hilliard’s Community Relations team as a Community Relations Specialist.   

Evans will be producing entertaining and informative videos that will help inform and engage the Hilliard community, as well as additional live events on social media. He also brings newswriting experience to the role, which will be beneficial in creating content for the City website, media releases, and social media.  

“This is truly a unique opportunity to serve the City of Hilliard,” Evans said. “This community has so many exciting stories to tell, and video offers a unique way to tell them.”

Evans comes to the City of Hilliard with eight years of television experience, working for local news stations in Ohio. He is a native of nearby Richwood in Union County and attended Indiana Wesleyan University, where he studied Media Communication and Public Relations.  

“A major part of the City’s information is presented on social media and the website, so video is an increasingly vital tool for ensuring our community is informed and engaged,” said David Ball, Director of Community Relations. “We are excited to be bringing in someone with Chase’s TV journalism experience and creative ideas.”   

Most recently, Evans has worked as a Sports Anchor/Reporter at WKBN/WYTV in Youngstown, where he covered local high school and collegiate teams. He also took charge of the station’s long-standing “Student Athlete of the Week” franchise, highlighting the top high school seniors in the area for their accomplishments on and off the field of play. Before that, he worked as a Sports Anchor/Reporter for WHIZ-TV in Zanesville.  

Evans is a licensed drone pilot, a skill he will use in producing his videos.  

“I am thrilled to be back in Central Ohio, and the City of Hilliard is such a vibrant and fast-growing community,” Evans said. “My plan is to highlight all the great things Hilliard has to offer and tell the stories of the people that make it all possible.”
