FishbowlNY is reporting Bill Carey, news director at WPIX, will be leaving the station.
A well-placed source tells FishbowlNY that Carey is leaving Channel 11 before the November sweeps period. It is believed that Carey is fielding several offers, including from a startup company. Carey had no comment to FishbowlNY about a change to his job status.
Carey is credited with hiring Jodi Applegate and having a new set built for her as well as revamping the morning news.
