Ryan is being bumped up from news resource manager at WSTM-WTVH, where he’s worked for the past nine years. He was a newscast director at WKTV from 1998 until 2001.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Jeremy back to WKTV,” McMurray said in a statement. “Jeremy’s familiarity with the station and the news operations — as well as his experience in the local and regional news business — make him an ideal fit for the position.”
McMurray also announced he would step aside from anchoring NewsChannel 2 at 6 on Friday. Don Shipman will co-anchor the newscast with Kristen Copeland, the same team that anchors the Live at Five Newshour. Shipman also anchors NewsChannel 2 at 10 on the CW11 and NewsChannel 2 at 11 on WKTV.
