Bringing all the news of the Tri-State to WLWT News 5

He's back.

Terry Daniels returned in March 2010 to WLWT as a reporter after a 7 year absence.

Terry was a reporter and anchor at News 5 from 1994 through 2002 before leaving to become the main anchor and managing editor at WTOL-TV in Toledo.

While in Cincinnati, Terry covered everything from presidential visits to the flooding in 1997, to the riots and the construction of Fort Washington Way.

He also covered national stories for WLWT as well as NBC stations around the country including six major hurricanes, the deadly school shootings in Jonesboro, Ark., and was at the Pentagon for a week of coverage right after Sept. 11.

Terry grew up in Sioux Falls, S.D., served in the U.S. Naval Reserve -- including two years active-duty in Okinawa during the Vietnam War -- and graduated from South Dakota State University.

After graduation, Terry worked at a number of TV stations around the nation but always loved the Cincinnati and northern Kentucky area.

He met his wife, Joan, here and moved back from Toledo after she got a promotion with her job.

"This is my home now" he said, "and we plan to spend the rest of our lives here."

"I'm so happy to be back at WLWT getting to do what I love and working with the best group of news people in the area."
