He has been news director for the Quincy Newspapers’ NBC affiliate KWWL since 2011. The move to the Eau Claire ABC affiliate keeps Schillinger within Quincy Newspapers.
“He brought a lot of experience to our newsroom which is helpful to some of our younger reporters,” Jim McKernan, KWWL station vice president and general manager told the Courier. “We’re grateful for Dan’s leadership.”
Schillinger came to KWWL from WJBF in Augusta, GA where he was director of news operations. He starts at WQOW in June.
