And the musical chairs have continued...here's their presser from today:
CINCINNATI- FOX19 (WXIX-TV/DT) announced today the promotion of Anchor/Reporter Dan Carroll to Co-Anchor of the FOX19 Ten o'clock News alongside Tricia Macke. Like Macke, Carroll is a native of Greater Cincinnati and joined FOX19 in 1993 during the launch of the news department. "Dan is an experienced reporter and anchor as well as a popular local favorite," say FOX19 Vice President/General Manager Bill Lanesey. "We are extremely fortunate to have a lead anchor team who innately understand the local market not just as reporters but as lifelong members of our community," adds Lanesey.
Dan began his career with FOX19 News as one the station's first 19News reporters in 1993. When the station launched 19 in the Morning in 1996, Carroll became Cincinnati's first television airborne traffic reporter aboard the Sky FOX19 helicopter. Five years later, Carroll traded in his birds eye view to take command of the area's only Northern Kentucky News Bureau anchoring from the station's newsroom inside Newport on the Levee. Carroll launched FOX19 Morning News at 4:30 in 2003 which continues to be the markets only regularly scheduled early morning newscast. Last year, Dan began the station's incredibly popular Cool Schools franchise which has become a weekly fixture featuring Dan's visits to more than 60 area schools.
"I look forward to the new challenges and responsibilities of co-anchoring the FOX19 Ten o'clock News," says Carroll. "I feel very fortunate to do what I've been doing in Cincinnati over the past fifteen years and as I move to the next step, there is nowhere else I'd rather be doing it," he adds.
Before joining FOX19, Dan spent 5 years at WLW-AM as a reporter and as the Clermont County Bureau Chief. He began his broadcast career at WTRE-AM in Greensburg, Indiana. Carroll is a native of Cincinnati's Mariemont suburb. He and his wife Paula live in Anderson Township with their son and daughter.
"Dan brings an incredible knowledge of the area along with a genuine interest in the news," says FOX19 News Director Steven Ackermann. "Dan's energy and enthusiasm was immediately evident. His performance made it obvious that our best choice for the FOX19 Ten o'clock News was already on the FOX19 team," says Ackermann.
