Doug Kufner to Join WCNC Sports Department

Doug Kufner, who has worked as a sports anchor at WTVW for the past six years, is leaving Evansville, IN to join WCNC in Charlotte.

Kufner has accepted a “jack of all trades” position with the NBC-affiliate’s sports department.  He’ll work as a producer, reporter, photographer, and anchor.

“I’m extremely grateful to WTVW for giving me the opportunity to live and work in Evansville over the last six years,” Kufner told TVSpy via email.  “My wife and I are thrilled to be moving to such a wonderful city in Charlotte.  I’m very excited to be joining the talented group of journalists at WCNC!”

Before joining WTVW, Kufner worked at WSIL in Harrisburg, IL and WTVF in Nashville.

Kufner says that the WCNC team won him over during the interview process.

“Everyone was so nice,” he recounted.  “They made me feel like I was already part of the family and I was very impressed with the management team of Carrie Hofmann and Corrie Harding.”

Here’s Kufner in action…
