Longtime WCPO News Director Announces Departure Following Newscast Meltdown

Bob Morford is leaving WCPO after more than a decade as the station’s news director.

This afternoon Morford told the WCPO newsroom that he will leave the ABC-affiliate after February sweeps, according to Cincinnati.com.

The announcement comes a day after the station suffered a major technical meltdown during its 11 p.m. newscast.  On Wednesday, WCPO’s automated production system reportedly crashed just before 11 p.m. and the station didn’t start the newscast until 11:08, and was unable to air video until 11:18.

TVSpy is still awaiting comment from Morford about his planned departure.
