Florida’s WPTV Ends ND Search, Picks Jeff Brogan

By Andrew Gauthier 


Jeff Brogan, a Cincinnati-native who has been with the city’s ABC-affiliate for 10 years, is packing his bags and moving to Florida to become the News Director of West Palm Beach’s WPTV. Brogan had most recently served as assistant news director for WCPO, which, like his new home, is owned by Scripps. “Brogan has been a key behind-the-scenes figure at WCPO,” writes Cincinnati media columnist John Kiesewetter.

In a memo to his staff, WPTV GM Steve Wasserman said that “an exhaustive search” had come to an end. “WCPO has made tremendous strides in recent years in the quality of its newscasts and the ratings that they generate,” Wasserman acknowledged. “Jeff has been a big part of that success.”


Brogan will begin at WPTV at the end of February. Before becoming assistant news director at WCPO, Jeff served as an Executive Producer and newscast producer.
