Still looking for confirmation on Kiska…
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.

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.July 1, 2018 at 10:28 am #182980
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.July 6, 2018 at 3:15 pm #183024
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.July 6, 2018 at 3:16 pm #183025
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.July 6, 2018 at 7:21 pm #183027
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.July 11, 2018 at 8:14 pm #183088
