Ousted WXIX Anchor Returns to TV

In November, anchor Dan Carroll left WXIX when the station brought in a new primary c0-anchor. Now he’s back on TV … at least temporarily.

Cincinnati.com reports Carroll will be the temporary host of “U.S. Bank Business Watch” on WKRC. “I wanted someone with TV experience to help us launch, and Dan came to the rescue,” producer Kelly Leon said, adding that the permanent host will most likely be someone with Business Courier, who will staff the on-air team with their reporters.

Carroll, who had been with WXIX for 19 years, left in the fall after the Fox affiliate hired Ben Swann to replace him as Tricia Macke‘s co-anchor. Carroll turned down the station’s offer to be the reporter on WXIX’s morning show.

Carroll has been eligible to work in television since March, when the non-compete clause in his WXIX contract expired.
