BREAKING NEWS: Beasley Leaves Channel 5

QUICK UPDATE: We're hearing that where he is going, is closer to his parents' home in Arkansas and is out west. That leaves plenty of markets open. Maybe Little Rock? Maybe OKC or Tulsa? Stay tuned...he's expected to announce it next week and we'll have it covered.

Original Post:

Derek Beasley has left WLWT-TV 5/Cincinnati. He apparently has found another opportunity elsewhere.

Richard Dyer tells the Enquirer: "After nearly four years with WLWT, and six years with Hearst Television, Derek Beasley has decided to move to another opportunity that you will hear about in the coming days. We thank Derek for his service to WLWT and wish him the best in his future endeavors. Derek appreciates the support he has received from Hearst Television in his career as Chief Meteorologist and thanks the Company for its faith in his abilities."

Wow. What a shocker! Sure has been an active two days...first WKRC lets Anna Townsend go, now WLWT is switching chiefs for the 7th time in 12 years...

More, as we here at TSMW know it...
