Jeff Brogan Named General Manager of WCPO

The E.W. Scripps Company has named Jeff Brogan vice president and general manager of Cincinnati ABC affiliate WCPO. He was serving as interim general manager after Steve Thaxton left in January.

“WCPO has a long history of agenda-setting journalism that serves the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky community,” said Brian Lawlor, senior vice president of the Scripps television division in a statement. “As a seasoned media executive who values creative storytelling and impactful journalism, Jeff will now have the opportunity to work in his hometown to help define the role of a local media organization in this new digital era.”

Before coming to WCPO, Brogan was in a corporate role at Scripps, overseeing news strategy at several of its owned stations.  He began his career at WXIX in Cincinnati and began working for Scripps in 2000 when he got a job as a producer at WCPO. In 2004, he was promoted to executive producer. He was named assistant news director in 2008. Two years later, he was promoted to news director of Scripps NBC affiliate WPTV in West Palm Beach, FL.
