There’s a new news director at KNOE, according to Jake’s DTV Blog: Bob Walters began at the CBS affiliate in Monroe, La. this week.
Walters joined the station, which is Hoak Media operates as part of a duopoly with KAQY, Parker Broadcasting’s ABC affiliate, on Monday. He spent more than 10 years as news director of WTVW in Evansville, becoming news director of WEHT when the stations merged last year. He was cut from the stations in June.
As Jake’s DTV Blog notes, he will be competing with his former employer, Nexstar Broadcasting, in his new role. Nexstar owns Fox-affiliated KARD and operates NBC-affiliated KTVE.
