Buffalo's Crooke to WKYC as VP/News?

Gannett NBC affiliate WKYC/3 Cleveland could be looking within the company for a replacement for VP/news Dick Moore, who is leaving the station to take a teaching position at the University of South Carolina.

Buffalo News media writer Alan Pergament reports that WGRZ/2 Buffalo news director Ellen Crooke "would appear to be a possible candidate" to replace Moore at WKYC. Pergament says Crooke has been at the helm during "ratings successes" at Channel 3's Gannett sister station. (Those are words that get the attention of general managers, so we're sure WKYC's Brooke Spectorsky is interested.)

It's apparently still early in the search, Crooke's boss, WGRZ general manager Jim Toellner, says it "has not been decided who goes (to WKYC)". Moore is apparently going to remain at WKYC until the end of June.
