Dan Carroll Let Go From WKEF-WRGT

The Cincinnati Enquirer is reporting Dan Carroll was let go from the Dayton ABC/FOX station WKEF-WRGT after his newscast on Friday.

Carroll told the Enquirer, “They told me the ratings were not what they hoped they would be.”

The morning news co-anchor started at WKEF-WRGT a little more than a year ago and, according to the Enquirer, signed a three year deal at the time.

Dan Carroll Named Morning Anchor At WKEF-WRGT

Dan Carroll has signed a three-year deal to be the morning anchor on WKEF-WRGT in Dayton, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Carroll has been filling in on the program since Pete Scalia left the station in September. He will be paired with co-anchor Meghan Mongillo to helm the 4:30 to 7 a.m. newscast on ABC-affiliate WKEF and the 7 to 9 a.m. newscast on Fox-affiliate WRGT. WKEF operates WRGT through a local marketing agreement.

Carroll was previously an anchor at WXIX, the Fox-affiliate in Cincinnati. He left the station in November 2010 after 17 years.

Ousted WXIX Anchor Returns to TV

In November, anchor Dan Carroll left WXIX when the station brought in a new primary c0-anchor. Now he’s back on TV … at least temporarily.

Cincinnati.com reports Carroll will be the temporary host of “U.S. Bank Business Watch” on WKRC. “I wanted someone with TV experience to help us launch, and Dan came to the rescue,” producer Kelly Leon said, adding that the permanent host will most likely be someone with Business Courier, who will staff the on-air team with their reporters.

Carroll, who had been with WXIX for 19 years, left in the fall after the Fox affiliate hired Ben Swann to replace him as Tricia Macke‘s co-anchor. Carroll turned down the station’s offer to be the reporter on WXIX’s morning show.

Carroll has been eligible to work in television since March, when the non-compete clause in his WXIX contract expired.
