WHAS News Director Mark Neerman Resigns

WHAS news director Mark Neerman has resigned from the Louisville ABC affiliate, effective immediately, TVSpy has learned.

WHAS general manager Linda Danna announced the news to staffers in an email this afternoon. The email included a statement from Neerman, who said he is “ready for the next challenge.”

“I’ve been very lucky to work with the first-rate team at WHAS 11 and I know they will continue to lead the way in a very competitive market,” Neerman said. “I’m considering a number of options and I look forward to what lies ahead.”

Neerman joined WHAS in 2009 from KNTV in San Francisco, where he was the assistant news director. He previously worked as ND for KVVU in Las Vegas and WTVR in Richmond, Va.

Assistant news director Jim Hice and executive newsroom producer Lena Moore will remain in their current roles, reporting to Danna, until a new news director is named.

Danna did not respond to a request for comment from TVSpy.

Louisville’s WHAS and WAVE Start Chopper Partnership

In an arrangement that is becoming more prevalent across the country, Louisville’s WHAS and WAVE are set to begin sharing a news helicopter this week.

Starting Friday, WHAS, a Belo-owned ABC-affiliate and WAVE, a Raycom Media-owned NBC-affiliate, will begin sharing a news helicopter from Helicopters Inc., based in St. Louis.

According to LouisvilleKY.com, the two stations will share air time and video feeds, especially in the event of breaking news, while also partitioning time for individual use of the chopper.

Earlier this month in Miami, NBC O&O WTVJ joined with WFOR and WPLG in sharing a helicopter.

“It’s becoming really common all across the country,” WHAS news director Mark Neerman said.
