RUMOR ALERT: WKYC Names New News Director

We haven’t confirmed this yet, so take it with a rumor-ish grain of salt, but…

OMW hears that former WTLV/WJXX “First Coast News” Jacksonville FL news director Mike McCormick is headed north to take Gannett Cleveland NBC affiliate WKYC/3’s open ND slot, effective June 1st.

The opening was created when WKYC VP/News Dick Moore left the station for a broadcast news teaching position at the University of South Carolina.

McCormick stays in the company for this move – an item on TV agent site says he resigned last month from that Gannett-owned NBC/ABC combo in Jacksonville. McCormick was ND of the Jacksonville stations since 1999, and has Ohio in his background…as a former EP of Dispatch’s Columbus CBS affiliate, WBNS/10.
