Reporter Brendan McCarthy Leaving WWL

Less than a year after joining New Orleans CBS affiliate WWL, Brendan McCarthy is leaving the station for a job in Louisville.

McCarthy will be managing editor Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting, the in-depth journalism wing of Louisville Public Media, after he signs off from WWL in June.

“It’s no secret that newsrooms everywhere are cutting back, which is why this opportunity to build a unique, investigative newsroom in Louisville is so appealing,” McCarthy said in a statement. “I look forward to working with the fine folks at Louisville Public Media and producing more hard-hitting journalism of great impact.”

WWL Hires Another Investigative Reporter Away From the New Orleans Times-Picayune

New Orleans CBS-affiliate WWL is adding Brendan McCarthy to its stable of investigative reporters beginning in September.

McCarthy has worked as a crime reporter for the New Orleans Times-Picayune since 2006. He joins his Times-Picayune colleague David Hammer, who will also join WWL later this year. The pair will work with investigative reporter Mike Perlstein and the rest of the station’s investigative unit.

“Brendan is a gifted storyteller, and his reporting has broken new ground in the coverage of crime in New Orleans,” WWL news director Bill Siegel said in a statement. “Our news organization immediately becomes stronger with his addition as we expand the investigative unit.”
