Doug Whitmire Named WLS 10:00 p.m. EP

whitmore wlsChicago ABC owned station WLS has promoted Doug Whitmire to executive producer of the 10:00 p.m. news.

“Doug has done a terrific job leading the morning team for the past 6 ½ years,” WLS VP and news director Jennifer Graves said in a statement. “Doug’s knowledge of Chicago and the ABC 7 newsroom makes him the ideal choice to take the reins at 10 PM.”

Whitmire has been the EP of the morning news since 2008.

Before coming to WLS in 2003, Whitmire worked at WTVG in Toledo, OH.

The station said he would split his time between newscasts until a morning replacement is hired.
