Less than a year after joining New Orleans CBS affiliate WWL, Brendan McCarthy is leaving the station for a job in Louisville.

McCarthy will be managing editor Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting, the in-depth journalism wing of Louisville Public Media, after he signs off from WWL in June.

“It’s no secret that newsrooms everywhere are cutting back, which is why this opportunity to build a unique, investigative newsroom in Louisville is so appealing,” McCarthy said in a statement. “I look forward to working with the fine folks at Louisville Public Media and producing more hard-hitting journalism of great impact.”
