WSPA Moves Gordon Dill to Weekday Evenings

Gordon Dill has been promoted to evening weekday anchor and 7 On Your Side watchdog reporter for Greenville, SC CBS affiliate, WSPA.

He told TVSpy, “The station put a lot of trust in me and I’m grateful. I’ll work every day to prove myself worthy.”

Dill, who came to WSPA in 2011 was a weekday anchor at crosstown rival WYFF when he found himself on the outs after an anchor shake up at the station.

In a press release announcing the move, vice president and general manager Bob Romine said, “Gordon’s experience in the market and his commitment to viewers and the community make him the obvious choice for this position.”

Dill will anchor the 5:30 p.m. and 7 p.m newscasts replacing Chris Cato who is moving to WCAU in Philadelphia.

Dill has spent the majority of his 12-year broadcasting career with WYFF, an NBC-affiliate, where he became a popular presence in the morning. He was squeezed out earlier this month as the station decided to change its daytime anchor lineup.

“After being assigned to a different schedule Gordon decided to seek employment opportunities elsewhere,” WYFF announced this week. “We wish Gordon the best of luck in the future.” Read more
