Julie Eisenman Lands in Savannah as News Director of WJCL-WTGS

Julie Eisenman, who has spent the majority of her broadcast career in Erie, PA, has landed in Savannah, where she’s been named news director of WJCL-WTGS.

After spending three years leading the newsroom at Erie’s WICU-WSEE, Eisenman is replacing Michael Sullivan as news director of the New Vision-owned duopoly.

“Julie’s passion for local news and her willingness to guide our staff made her the obvious choice,” WJCL-WTGS president and general manger Scott McBride said in a press release, which mentioned that the stations conducted “an exhaustive search that included several candidates from across the country.”

A Pennsylvania native, Eisenman began her career as a weekend assignment editor at Pittsburgh’s WPXI before joining WICU as a beat reporter. At WICU, she worked her way up through the newsroom, becoming an anchor and then assistant news director before eventually being named ND.

“I’m absolutely thrilled,” Eisenman said of her new job. “I know it’s going to be a big challenge, but it’s one I’m greatly looking forward to. We have a great team of eager journalists. It will be a pleasure working with them.”
