Bob Walters is out as news director of WEHT-WTVW in Evansville.
Walters, who had been with WTVW since 2000, was promoted to news director of both stations last year after Nexstar Broadcasting acquired WEHT and merged its operations with WTVW. His departure was first reported this week by Jake’s DTV Blog.
WEHT-WTVW production manager John Payne was also let go by Nexstar, and he has since been replaced by Jeremy Moore from WTWO, the company’s NBC-affiliate in Terre Haute.
Nexstar currently has a job posting up for the now-vacant news director position at WEHT-WTVW.
