Eric Minor Leaving WTOV for University Job

WTOV has announced Eric Minor, anchor for the Stuebenville, OH, NBC affiliate, is leaving the station.

“Our daughter is about to turn 12 years old and my son is an energetic 8-year-old,” said Minor in a statement on the station website. “Even on this modified schedule, NEWS9 at Six will always be on at 6 p.m. That meant I was still missing band concerts, soccer games and family dinners. You only get to watch your kids grow up once.”

Minor was hired by West Virginia University’s P.I. Reed School of Journalism as director of student careers and opportunities. His last day is two weeks from Friday.

Minor has worked at WTOV for more than 16 years. He anchors the station’s noon and evening newscasts.

WTOV Unveils 90-Minute Evening News Block

WTOV, an NBC-affiliate serving the Ohio Valley, debuted a new, 90-minute evening news block yesterday, from 5 to 6:30 p.m.

For the past 15 years, WTOV has run “Seinfeld” between 30-minute newscasts at 5 and 6 p.m. but now the station has decided to move in a new direction, offering local news instead of syndicated content in the timeslot.

“Through research, News9 viewers told us they want more news,” said Tim McCoy, vice president and general manager of WTOV (channel 9). “It only made sense to expand our newscast.”

Eric Minor and Allison Latos will be at the anchor desk from 5-5:30 and 6-6:30 p.m., while Natalie Herbick will join Minor from 5:30-6. Chief meteorologist Kevin Carter will provide weather updates throughout the 90-minute news block.
