Paige Harrison Named News Director at WPBF

Paige Harrison is joining WPBF as news director.  Harrison comes to the West Palm Beach ABC affiliate from WTAE in Pittsburgh where she was assistant news director.

“It’s a tremendous opportunity to return to Florida and join the area’s most talented and hard-working local news team,” said Harrison. “WPBF 25 has seen historic ratings growth, and I look forward to further strengthening our commitment to the South Florida viewers.”

Harrison, who moves from one Hearst station to another, fills the empty chair vacated by Kyle Grimes’ promotion to president and general manager of Hearst Stations WPTZ-WNNE in Plattsburgh-Burlington.

“Paige brings exceptional news judgment and large-market television experience to her new role at WPBF 25,” said WPBF President and General Manager Caroline Taplett. “Her vision, coupled with her energy and proven leadership, will enhance our award-winning breaking news and weather coverage.”

Harrison has also worked at KOCO in Oklahoma City and WESH in Orlando.
