WKRC News Director Leaving

By Kevin Eck 

WKRC news director Kirk Varner says he’s leaving the Cincinnati CBS station.

“The headline is that I’m leaving the position of News Director for Local 12 on July 3rd,” Varner told staff in a memo. “It will be some 4 and ½ years to the day since I started working here and to put it as simply as I can, I don’t believe that in my forty years of being a broadcaster, I’ve ever enjoyed a station, a market and a group of colleagues as much.”

Varner didn’t say where he’s going. According to Rick Gevers, He is “searching for the next opportunity.”
