Sportscaster Dennis Janson Takes On New Role at WCPO

After 18 years as a sportscaster for WCPO, Dennis Janson is taking on a new role at the Cincinnati ABC affiliate. Starting this summer, Janson will be a columnist on the air and on the station’s website.

“A chance to be part of the cutting edge efforts being exerted on our digital platforms is particularly intriguing,” Janson said in a statement. “And there will be a role for me on-air with an edge of its own.”

“Dennis has tremendous knowledge of the area, is well connected and can get people thinking,” WCPO VP-GM Jeff Brogan said. “The days of local media having columnists are nearly extinct and we feel Dennis is positioned to fill that void by bringing insight and context to our users and viewers.”

News of a new role for Janson was first reported by the Cincinnati Enquirer‘s John Kiesewetter.
