In the aftermath of Evansville’s WEHT merger with WTVW last week, some prominent staffers at the station who were casualties of the joint operation have secured new jobs, the Evansville Courier-Press reports.
Among them are reporters Danielle Lama (pictured) and Daniela Perallon, who both joined WEHT in September, and producers Jason Pumo and Rachel Powers.
Lama will join WKOW, the ABC-affiliate in Madison, and Perallon will join WHNT, the CBS-affiliate in Huntsville, AL.
On the production side, Pumo, who produced the 6 and 10 p.m. newscasts for WEHT, has been hired as an executive producer at WJTV in Jackson, MS. Powers joins Waterman Broadcasting in Fort Myers, FL.
