David Baer Hired as WHP News Director

David Baer has been named news director for Harrisburg, PA, CBS affiliate WHP.

Arthur Hasson, WHP vice president and general manager told TVSpy, “We are very excited about the arrival of our new news director David Baer. He has an amazing background with extensive news room experience highlighted by excellence at every step. His recent experience in Albany NY is particularly appropriate given it is also a hyphenated market centered in a state capitol.”

Baer last worked as news director at WXXA in Albany, NY. The Newport owned station was bought by Shield Media last year and entered into a shared services agreement with Young Broadcasting, the owners of Albany ABC affiliate WTEN. Under the terms of the agreement, WTEN took over production of the newscasts for both stations.

Baer has also worked at WGGB in Springfield, MA, and has been a news director in Indianapolis, Raleigh, Providence, Portland, ME, and Buffalo.
