Hagit Limor is switching stations in Cincinnati. Limor, an investigative reporter, joins Fox affiliate WXIX after 19 years at ABC affiliate WCPO, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports:

Limor will not appear on Channel 19 until later this fall, pending her negotiations with [WCPO]. Her hiring shows that news director Kevin Roach — a former [WCPO] assistant news director hired in March, who had worked closely with Limor there for years — is serious about investigative reporting at Fox 19.

Limor shifted to part-time at WCPO last year in order to teach journalism at the University of Cincinnati. She will continue as a professor in her new role at WXIX.
