WWL-TV's Rob Nelson moving up to the nationals



WWL-TV news guy Rob Nelson -- past president of the New Orleans Press Club and the funniest emcee in the city -- announced on his Facebook page today that he's heading to New York City at the end of the month to become coanchor of ABC News' overnight World News Now.

Nelson, a former Times-Pic reporter, has been working at WWL since 2007, often on the morning news (where he sometimes matched wits with Gambit's Noah Bonaparte Pais on the Thursday "3-Day Weekend" report).

Nice guy and good newsman. We'll miss you, Rob, but New Orleans' loss is New York's gain. Congrats.
