“Lee’s first love was always radio,” WLEX news director Bruce Carter told the Herald-Leader. “He was in radio before he started here, and I think it’ll be a great thing for him.”
Cruse, who anchors the morning and midday newscasts, is also a stand-up comedian who travels the country performing at comedy clubs and colleges. He will join WVLK-590 AM as the 10:00 a.m. to noon anchor on May 1.
>Update: Cruse is staying with WLEX, Carter told TVSpy in an email. “Lee is still our morning live feature talent and also co-anchors a 12:30 news segment. The radio gig is an additional position with our radio partner, Cumulus,” Carter wrote.
