In addition to the news director, we have a terrific team of managers at 13abc who provide leadership in order to provide Toledo's best news, information and entertainment programming. They have a keen sense of what is important to viewers in Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan. We also listen to audience feedback so we may provide the highest quality of service to the public.
Part of my job involves responding to viewer comments about the news we cover. Viewers write or call to discuss their perceptions both positive and negative. After evaluating each comment, I try to evaluate its validity and respond accordingly. After beginning my television news career more than thirty years ago in Indianapolis, I have concluded that viewers are a caring and intelligent group who demand and deserve respect.
After time at stations in Indy and Louisville, Kentucky, as a reporter and assignments editor, my first job as a news director came in 1989 in Steubenville, Ohio at WTOV. From there my news management career sent me to Georgia and Tennessee before returning to Ohio at 13abc in 2002.
The job of news director is challenging, exciting and rewarding! The best part is that I have the opportunity to work daily with professionals who are passionate and dedicated. I wish to take this opportunity to thank them and I thank you for taking time to read this and for watching 13abc Action News!
