Sports Director Jim Wogan Leaving WATE After 24 Years

jim wogan wateAfter more than two decades at WATE, sports director Jim Wogan is leaving the Knoxville ABC affiliate. Wogan has accepted a position as the director of communications with the Catholic Diocese of Knoxville.

“He will be sorely missed by his colleagues and by WATE viewers,” general manager Dean Littleton said in a statement. “We hate to lose Jim but we are happy for him that he is pursing an opportunity that is close to his heart.”

Wogan, who joined WATE in 1990, will sign off in June. He said making the move “was not an easy decision.”

“I like it here and I love the group of people I work with, but this move goes to the core of who I am as a Catholic,” Wogan said.
