Assistant news director Dave Parker is leaving WCAU, a spokesperson for the NBC O&O confirmed to TVSpy.
Parker’s departure comes two weeks after Chris Blackman stepped down as news director, saying he and recently-named general manager Eric Lerner came to the “mutual conclusion that it’s time for new leadership in the newsroom.”
Parker has been the assistant news director at WCAU since 2002. His last day will be June 19.
“I want nothing but the best for NBC 10 and wish much success to Eric and his team,” Parker wrote in an email to staffers obtained by the 247Newsroom. “I will miss seeing all of you. Simply put, goodbye and I love you guys.”
