Phil Sanchez returned to WISH-TV in August of 2015, after spending 4 years at the anchor desk at WISH-TV’s sister station in Raleigh, North Carolina. You may remember Phil from his first stint with 24-Hour News 8 from 2007-2011. During that time, he covered some of the Circle City’s biggest stories, receiving an Emmy and Associated Press Award for his reporting in the area.
Phil’s television news career began in 2004, and since then, he’s never looked back. An east coast native, Phil has also served stations in New York and New Jersey.
Phil is a graduate of Adelphi University on Long Island, and has completed some graduate work in Broadcast Journalism at New York Institute of Technology.
When it comes to home, there’s no place like Indianapolis for Phil! Not only was Phil’s wife, Jennifer born and raised in Indiana, but they just wouldn’t be happy raising daughter, Sofie and son, Shea anywhere else. Phil and his wife knew the second they left 4 years ago, they wanted to return to Central Indiana, and they couldn’t be happier to be back!
You can find Phil anchoring at noon and 5 for 24-Hour News 8, and contributing reports during the week.
