WISH Promotes Steve Bray to News Director

By Kevin Eck 

One down, two to go.   WISH has removed the “interim” from interim news director Steve Bray’s title, reducing the number of open news director slots in Indianapolis to two.

“Steve’s varied and experienced background in news and weather, as well as his dedication to being a first informer with digital and on-air, makes him the ideal candidate to lead our news department,” said WISH president and general manager Jeff White.  “Steve has made a tremendous positive impact in every one of his many roles at WISH-TV.  I look forward to this success continuing as news director.”

Bray has been interim news director for the Indianapolis CBS affiliate since the departure of Patti McGettigan in August.  He joined WISH in 1995, working his way up the ranks after being promoted chief meteorologist in 1999, then news operations manager in 2009 and assistant news director in 2011.

“WISH-TV has a strong news tradition coming from a great product, produced by talented people, with a core value of serving our viewers,” said Bray. “I am honored and look forward to leading this talented team, making our news product even stronger.”
