Brent Weisberg Joining KOIN From Rival KPTV

After almost four years at Portland Fox-affiliate KPTV, reporter Brent Weisberg is joining rival KOIN.

Weisberg will be a reporter for the CBS-affiliate’s morning newscast, which is anchored by Chad Carter and Alexis Del Cid.

“Brent’s energy and aggressive attitude is a perfect formula for what we are trying to achieve in our morning show,” KOIN news director Brad Neuhoff told TVSpy in an email.

Weisberg has worked at KPTV since September 2008. His first day at KOIN will be March 15.

Weather Channel Veteran Rashida Jones Tapped as WIS’s New News Director

Rashida Jones, who has served as director of live programming at The Weather Channel since 2009 (and is not the actress daughter of Quincy Jones known for roles on “The Office” and “Parks and Recreation”), has been tapped to lead the newsroom at WIS, a Raycom-owned NBC-affiliate in Columbia, SC.

WIS general manager Donita Todd confirmed the move to TVSpy today, saying that Jones’s first day as WIS’s news content director will be August 1st.

Jones has spent most of her career with The Weather Channel, which she joined as a producer in 2004. Before joining TWC, Jones was a producer for WTKR working on the CBS-affiliate’s 11pm newscast.

She is replacing Brad Neuhoff, who departed WIS this month to become the news director at KOIN in Portland, OR.

Brad Neuhoff named News Director at KOIN

Brad Neuhoff is heading cross country — all the way across. He’s leaving his gig as new director of WIS in Columbia, SC (market #78) for the news director job at KOIN in Portland, OR (market #22)

Neuhoff had been at WIS since 2007. Before that he had stints as EP at KSTP in Minneapolis/St. Paul, and senior producer jobs at KWGN in Denver and KCOP in Los Angeles.

Neuhoff is one of twelve news directors in the country to be chosen for the Kneeland New Media Leadership Forum. He starts at KOIN July 5.

KOIN’s news operation was once run by Jeff Alan, who was living under that assumed name for 24 years. He was arrested, charged and would later plead guilty to multiple counts of fraud. In September, the judge threw the book at him sentencing him to the maximum 18 months in prison for his crimes.

Lynn Heider was news director after Alan was fired. An interim news director has been in place since she departed in December.
