In Louisville, WAVE Shuffles Newscast Schedule

Following a disappointing November sweeps period, Louisville’s WAVE is making some changes to its newscast lineup for 2012, Rick Redding reports on louisvilleky.com.

Starting in January, the noon newscast on the NBC-affiliate will be moved an hour earlier. With the change, WAVE will be the only station in the market with a newscast in the 11 a.m. timeslot.

The station’s hour-long local talk show, “WAVE 3 Listens,” has occupied the 11 a.m. timeslot since July. That program will now air at noon, with one major change — a new host. In what general manager Ken Selvaggi called “a promotion from within,” John Ramsey will take over for Cindi Sullivan.

One Year After DUI Arrest, Former WLKY Anchor John Boel Joins Rival Station WAVE

John Boel, who was fired last year from WLKY in Louisville, is joining rival station WAVE, louisvilleky.com reports.

Boel was an anchor at CBS-affilate WLKY for 20 years until he was fired in November 2010 following a DUI arrest. He will join NBC-affiliate WAVE as a reporter with the potential for some anchoring duties on January 2.

WAVE general manager Ken Selvaggi told louisvilleky.com that Boel’s “best days are ahead.”

“He believes those issues are behind him and we hope that’s the case,” he said. “Obviously it’s a daily challenge but we’re optimistic he’s put it behind him.”

Collin Gaston Promoted to Top Position at WSFA

Collin Gaston has been promoted to vice president and general manager at Raycom Media’s WSFA in Montgomery, AL.

The move comes after Ken Selvaggi, who had been WSFA’s VP-GM since 2006, was tapped to succeed Steve Langford atop WAVE, Raycom’s Louisville station, earlier this month.

Gaston currently serves as WSFA’s general sales manager. He will assume his new role on March 28th.

Before joining the Montgomery NBC-affiliate four years ago, Gaston worked for WAWS and WTEV in Jacksonville, FL.

Ken Selvaggi Picked to Succeed Langford as WAVE VP-GM

Ken Selvaggi, the vice president and general manager of WSFA in Montgomery, AL, has been tapped to succeed Steve Langford atop Louisville’s WAVE.

Langford, 58, announced to staff last week that he would be retiring after 32 years with the station.

Selvaggi has been with WSFA since July of 2006.  He has worked in a handful of different markets throughout his career and he actually has experience in Louisville, where he worked as a producer for WHAS from 1989-90.

Both WSFA and WAVE are owned by Raycom Media. Selvaggi’s first day is set for March 21.
