7News This Evening Anchor


After 14 years of waking up the north country as anchor of 7News This Morning, Jeff Cole began anchoring our 6 p.m. evening news on May 1, 2017.

A West Carthage native, Jeff chose to return to the North Country to work with the very people he grew up watching on television at a station that has a 60-year, storied-history of on-air excellence and community commitment.  He's added to WWNY's journalism merit by being honored with awards from the Associated Press and NYS Broadcasters Association.  And from Jeff's creation of a Habitat for Humanity project on what was once his family's business/land, called "Braman's Block," to emceeing several fundraisers, you can understand how he feels it's important to be involved in the community.  

Outside of the TV station, Jeff enjoys being outside to go kayaking, hiking, working out and then relaxing by the pool.
