Josh Eure Out as WHAS News Director Before He Started

eure_whasJosh Eure, who was scheduled to start Monday as news director for Gannett operated station WHAS will not be coming to the Louisville ABC affiliate after all.

WHAS GM Linda Danna told TVSpy, “Josh has decided to remain in Phoenix.”

>UPDATE: KPNX GM John Misner told TVSpy Eure will stay in his position as assistant ND at the Phoenix station.

In a TVSpy exclusive, Eure responded to reports of his legal troubles in Phoenix as publicized by subscription media site Newsblues who first reported today’s news.

“All of the charges brought against me were dismissed by the State of Arizona due to ‘No reasonable likelihood of conviction,.’ End of story,” wrote Eure. “Since the State itself has opted not to pursue its opportunity to ‘prove me guilty’ it is unconscionable that I should stand accused by a gossip media website.”

Eure was the assistant news director of Gannett’s Phoenix NBC affiliate KPNX before being named news director at WHAS.
