After being replaced as news director at WDBJ last month and moving to the role of features reporter, Dan Dennison has called it quits at the Roanoke, VA, CBS affiliate.
WDBJ president and general manager Jeff Marks told The Roanoke Times, “Dan changed his mind about the reporting role and has elected to move on. We are all grateful to him for the work he did to elevate the production and content of our newscasts.”
Dennison, who was replaced as news director by Kelly Zuber on July 31, didn’t reveal why he left the station when he told The Times, “I’m proud of the accomplishments made by the WDBJ7 team during my tenure at the station. This includes many product improvements, as evidenced by consistent ratings growth, and recently in recognition from broadcast industry peers, in the form of three regional Emmy Awards and an Edward R. Murrow Award for overall news excellence.”
