Oops: WTHR Uses KTTV Meteorologist Pablo Pereira’s Headshot in Story About New GM

Indianapolis NBC affiliate WTHR gave an on-air welcome to its new general manager, Larry Delia, during the 6 p.m. newscast on Friday night.

“Our family here at WTHR is welcoming a new general manager to channel 13. Larry Delia has been named president and GM of WTHR by our parent company, the Dispatch Broadcast Group,” anchor John Stehr said. “We want to welcome Larry to Channel 13.”

One problem: WTHR used the headshot of Pablo Pereira, a meteorologist at KTTV in Los Angeles, in the graphic (above).

WTHR ran the correct picture during the 11 p.m. newscast and the 8 a.m. newscast Saturday (below).
