In 2006, former WPTA-TV (Channel 21, Fort Wayne) meteorologist Chris Bradley joined WBNS-TV in Columbus, Ohio. Today, he's their chief meteorologist. Earlier this year, doctors diagnosed Mr. Bradley with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. He underwent chemotherapy, had a stem cell transplant, and went into remission. Mr. Bradley's family told WBNS-TV that he's no longer in remission and he's battling severe pneumonia while in the ICU at a Columbus, Ohio hospital.


Gray Television's NBC affiliate/WNDU-TV (Channel 16, South Bend) welcomes News Director Kate Glover. Ms. Glover recently spent nearly a year as News Director in Buffalo, New York (WGRZ-TV). Before that, Ms. Glover worked for nearly three years as Assistant News Director (and, they promoted her to News Director) at KOIN-TV in Portland, Oregon.

Early next year, Weigel Broadcasting's ABC affiliate WBND-TV (Channel 57, South Bend) will welcome evening news anchor Brian Conybeare. Mr. Conybeare will co-anchor four evening newscasts with Colleen Bormann (5:00pm, 5:30pm, 6:00pm and 11:00pm), along with a 10:00pm local newscast on sister CW affiliate WCWW-LD (Channel 25, South Bend). Mr. Conybeare last worked as a reporter and anchor for WCBS-TV in New York City and News12 Westchester, New York.


Michel Paul Evans exits as Production Director of the Brewer Broadcasting/Richmond cluster. If you're interested in this opportunity, please look at our Employment Opportunities section.

The FCC cancels the license of Hoosier Public Radio's WRFM (89.1fm, Wilkinson). WRFM went silent over a year ago.

That's all for this issue. Thank you for your continued support.
