WDRB has hired two more reporters from the Courier-Journal. Jason Riley and Marcus Green officially join the Louisville Fox affiliate next week.

“We at WDRB are pleased to welcome two of the most accomplished print journalists in Louisville. They will give Louisville area television viewers access to a new level of in-depth investigative journalism that has simply never been available from a television station before now,” WDRB general manager Bill Lamb said in a statement.

Both reporters will write for the station’s website and make the occasional appearance on the air. They will be reunited with former Journal-Courier colleagues Rick Bozich and Eric Crawford, who joined WDRB in June.

WDRB’s Eric Crawford on Transitioning to TV

Louisville’s WDRB recently announced two new hires in the sports department, Eric Crawford and Rick Bozich. The pair joined the station from the Courier-Journal, where both have made a long career in the print medium. “The shrinking of a newspaper I grew up with and loved was not something I cared to watch from the inside any longer,” Crawford writes on WRDB’s website:

Rick Bozich, Eric Crawford Join WDRB Sports Team

WDRB, the Fox-affiliate in Louisville, has hired sports reporters Rick Bozich and Eric Crawford.

The pair join the station from the Courier-Journal in Louisville. In a statement, WDRB said Bozich and Crawford “can be read and seen exclusively on WRDB.com and WDRB news.”

“It’s going to be a cutting edge opportunity for us because there’s so many components to it,” Bozich said. “There will be the the television part of it and there’s the Internet part of it. And we’ll still be able to continue to write columns, and comment on things, and blog, and do video. There’s just limitless opportunities.”
