Terri Cope-Walton has been promoted to news director at WRTV, the ABC affiliate in Indianapolis.
Cope-Walton has worked at WRTV since 1998, most recently as assistant news director. She stepped into the role of interim news director in November 2012 after Kevin Finch parted ways with the station.
“After a nationwide search, I found the most qualified, natural leader for RTV6 News right here inside our station,” WRTV VP-GM Larry Blackerby said in a statement. “In just the past few weeks, Terri has done an outstanding job leading our team of journalists … Terri’s news judgment, passion and commitment to local coverage is outstanding.”
