    With the old thread no longer being open. This will be the official new thread for the coming and goings for Cleveland TV Personalities.

    Starting off. Sarah Phinney has announced she will be leaving WEWS to join WFTS in Tampa as a traffic anchor. Her last day is June 18th.

    Speaking of WEWS, someone posted on Paul Kiska’s Facebook page that he’s no longer at the station.  He had been there since 2000, so that is a shock.

    Good Luck, Paul!

    After being a reporter at Chan 5 News for nearly twenty years, Paul Kiska will be taking his talents elsewhere.

    We have worked with Paul on many stories in Lorain County over the years. He is a true professional and has earned the trust of many people in our community. That trust is as valuable as knowing how to put the Who, What, Why & Where together before the light on the camera goes on.

    I also noticed 19 has a brand new reporter named Kendall Forward. She spent sometime in D.C. before joining 19.

    Sorry to see her leave.  She is a good reporter and seems like a nice young lady.  And not too hard on the eyes either. Hopefully she will pop up at another local station.

    Won’t be anytime soon – she’s off to the land of Starbucks, Boeing, and the Space Needle (Seattle)

    Jennifer Auh has left WKYC and Cleveland for Fox 10 in Phoenix.  She changed her social media pages to her current station.  She first came to town at WEWS before moving to 3.

    Nobody stays anymore. Local news is a dying bread too easy to just read stories on the internet and not watch it on TV. If I watch, I catch WKYC at 7pm.

    FTVLive reports that two news managers at WEWS have been fired over the handling of an attempt to have a reporter get an interview with a rape victim in Newburgh Heights.  The same city whose mayor is suing Channel 5 over an investigative report.

    The FTVLive story include the body camera footage of the city’s police chief confronting the WEWS crew before telling them to leave.  The footage was also on the Facebook page of the Newburgh Heights Police Department where all of the residents applauded the police chief, and slammed Channel 5.  It has since been taken, but reviews of anti-Channel 5 comments remain.

    WEWS has hired a new investigative reporter from Houston named Scott Noll, and he’s already reporting for the station.  He’s also a Cleveland native.

    In TV, even radio….Cleveland has for a few decades been a larger market to work in to get experience and then those with enough talent & desire to move up to major markets for bigger bucks. Some make lateral market size moves to warmer climates. This really isn’t that new a trend.

    The only real change of late is TV & radio stations cutting staff sizes, hiring younger/cheaper, and losing some audience & increasingly greater advertising revenues to on line sites.
