Brian Davis out at WTRF-TV?

Post by Greg Goodfellow » Sat Jun 11, 2016 7:15 pm

WTRF-TV seems to have hired a new morning meteorologist named Emily Goodman, according to 'yourohiovalley.com'.
Up until very recently, Brian Davis was featured in a promo for their "McDonald's Breakfast Club." If anyone knows anything, please share. He seemed like a good guy, and I hope he lands on his feet very soon.

From what I heard he is now at WTOK TV in Meridian MS. Also Nate Fluharty left WTRF the day before Brian Davis signed off. Also I guess Don Hammond left wowk. So let the Nextstar changes begin. WHAG has started airing West Virginia Tonight as of in the past week.

That is a pretty big loss for the Tri-State/Kanawha Valley. Don has an on air presence that is deserving of a market larger than our little DMA.

Not so little....you're actually TV market 67, making you larger than Rochester and Syracuse in NY, the Tri-Cities of NE TN, Roanoke-Lynchburg, Boise, Des Moines, and Omaha.

That's just households/population, of course....someone else can look up the rankings by available ad dollars.......
