“Eric Ludgood is no longer with WGCL in Atlanta,” a Meredith spokesperson told TVSpy. “We wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”
Ludgood had been assistant news director at WGCL before leaving for three months in 2010 to work as news director for WNCN in Raleigh, NC. He returned to WGCL as news director in February 2011 replacing Steve Schwaid.
WGCL vice president and general manager Trey Fabacher told TVSpy the station would begin its search for a news director, “very shortly.”
