News Cuts At WTVN?

Post by Mr. Jones »

All Access:
Has CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WTVN-A/COLUMBUS, OH cut back on its local news staff and is the regional news hub that the station's news department provided for other CLEAR CHANNEL stations being moved to sister Talk WLW-A/CINCINNATI?

ALL ACCESS has heard from multiple sources that News Director LUANN STOIA and anchors RON SMITH and GREG KURTZ have exited WTVN with remaining news staffers reporting to PD MIKE ELLIOTT and the regional news hub that served other OHIO markets moving to WLW, but a request for comment from the station was returned with no comment.

Shades of March 2006, when my old college friend Dave Isaacs was let go by WTVN & CC/Columbus to make room for a ND the station manager had worked with before. Dave is now Director of Communications for the Dem. Caucus in the Ohio House.

Will WLW get more folks to handle the extra work? Don't bet the house on it....
