BREAKING NEWS: WKYC Names New News Director

Gannett Cleveland NBC affiliate WKYC/3 has officially named a news director.

WKYC senior director Frank Macek's "Director's Cut" blog alerts us that acting news director Rita Andolsen, who was assistant news director under now-former ND Mike McCormick, takes the top news job on a permanent basis.

After McCormick left "Channel 3 News", he landed at WPMI in Mobile AL.

We'd heard rumblings of other possible news director candidates at 13th and Lakeside over the past few months.

But from what we've heard from just about anyone inside - and outside - the WKYC Digital Broadcast Center, Andolsen was clearly the popular choice. So, we believe her appointment to run the newsroom there will be well-received...

Isn't "new news" redundant?

Channel 3 should get rid of Good Company, or at least get rid of the glass table guy. Why not air the 4th hour of the today show??

Not sure how true this is, but I've heard that Applegate at WOIO will retire at the end of the year. Something to look into for a later post. I hope he does leave, things will only get better.
