Mike Neelly Named News Director at WLWT, Andrea Stahlman to Replace Him at WLKY

There are leadership changes coming to Hearst stations in Cincinnati and Louisville. WLKY news director Mike Neelly will move to WLWT, and assistant news director Andrea Stahlman will replace him at WLKY.

Neelly joined WLKY in 1997 and was named news director three years later. During his time at the station, the CBS affiliate expanded its news operation and became the market’s ratings leader. At WLWT, Cincinnati’s NBC affiliate, he replaces Stacy Owen, who is joining KNBC in Los Angeles.

“WLWT News 5 is fortunate to welcome a news director with Mike’s extensive experience and outstanding track record of success,” general manager Richard Dyer said in a statement. “With his exceptional leadership skills and strong news instincts, Mike is perfectly suited to build on the foundation of ratings growth and momentum for WLWT News 5.”

Stahlman will step into the news director role at WLKY on November 12. She has spent 12 years as the station’s assistant news director. Read more

WLWT Adds Morning Anchor to 5 p.m. Newscast

WLWT has shuffled its anchor lineup to take advantage of a “Dr. Oz” lead-in at 5 p.m. The NBC-affiliate has added popular morning anchor Lisa Cooney (near right) to its 5 o’clock newscast, where she’ll work alongside Sheree Paolello.

“The departure of Oprah and the arrival of Dr. Oz will create a great opportunity for WLWT News 5 to appeal to a new set of viewers,” WLWT president and general manager Richard Dyer said, in announcing the move.  “In addition to playing a major role anchoring our #1 morning show… Lisa’s experience includes health reporting, which we feel provides an opportunity for a unique connection with our 5 pm audience coming out of ‘Dr Oz.’” Read more

Cincinnati Rivals Both Claim to Be #1

In a classic case of sweeps spin, rival Cincinnati stations WLWT and WKRC are both claiming to be #1 in the mornings.

In WLWT’s press release, president and general manager Richard Dyer boasted that the NBC-affiliate “is once again proving to be the Tri-State’s choice for how to wake up in the morning.”

Across town, Les Vann, Dyer’s counterpart at WKRC, proclaimed that his CBS-affiliate is “proud to once again be the market leader,” with “Good Morning Cincinnati” claiming the top spot in the morning.

So who’s really #1? Well they both are, to an extent.

WLWT finished in the top spot at 4:30 a.m. as well as 6:00 a.m. in Adults 25-54, while WKRC was #1 in Adults 25-54 from 5:30-7 a.m. Everyone’s a winner! [Via John Kiesewetter]
