By Kevin Eck Comment

WAKA_logoJack Pagano, the newly appointed news director for Montgomery, AL, CBS affiliate WAKA has left the station after being hired in May.

Pagano told TVSpy he left so he could take care of a family issue, adding. “I will seek another run in broadcasting as soon as my family situation is resolved.”

A retired Army Lieutenant Colonel, Pagano said he may return to the battlefield. “I’ve been asked/selected for a return although the “heat” is hotter than ever in Iraq and Afghanistan.  My “nine lives” have been used.”

Pagano replaced Rob Martin, who left the station for WIAT in Birmingham.
