Another NewsChannel 5 Departure - A Big One

A high-profile face and name is about to leave local television, and in specific, his current employer - Scripps ABC affiliate WEWS/5 "NewsChannel 5".

OMW hears that it's already been announced at 3001 Euclid... reporter/anchor Jack Marschall will exit the building, heading out of the business for a job as Director of Community Relations for his home city of Parma.

This has been Jack's second tour of duty on Euclid, with a previous stint in the mid-1980's. And of course, he is also known for his time on WUAB/43's old "Ten O'Clock News" newscast, which was supplanted by the 10 PM edition of WOIO/19's "19 Action News" when both stations became co-owned.

In recent times, Jack Marschall had served as a traffic reporter - dubbed Jack "Air" Marschall - on Channel 5's "Good Morning Cleveland". He's also filed news stories for the station's later newscasts...

I worked with Jack at 19/43. A true professional blessed with a fun sense of humor, Jack set a high standard of excellence without developing the sort of ego that plagues many on-air types.

Broadcasting is diminished by Jack's departure.
