There’s even more news to report about personnel changes at WLKY-TV, though at least none of it involves the local police.
The station has hired a new full-time reporter. Erin Haynes began her TV career as an intern at the station before moving on to stations in Louisiana and Terre Haute, Ind. (WTHI-TV). Haynes has been living in Louisville and has already started working on Mellwood Avenue.
Lauren Jones is the new part-time weathercaster at WLKY. She’s from Columbus, Ind. and has been working at WTVW-TV in Evansville. Here’s a clip of a story she did last November.
There is likely to be a few more new faces in the coming weeks. The station is seeking a full-time person in weather, and is likely to hire someone to replace Jim Bulleit.
Interestingly, all the cast members from what was once the city’s top morning show team have left the station, each under somewhat unusual circumstances. And as far as we know, they’re all still around town. Abby Miller refused to take a demotion and left the station last September, and co-anchor Paul Moses was fired in December. Kim Stevens is winding up her time at the station doing weather after being switched from morning to weekends. And then Jim Bulleit‘s announcement that came today.
We’ll keep you posted as the soap opera continues.
