WTHI Reporter Charged With Domestic Battery

WTHI reports Jon Swaner, a reporter for the Terre Haute, IN, CBS affiliate, has been charged with misdemeanor domestic battery.

The station seemed to be headed for a bit of a firestrom after viewers noticed the station had posted a story about the upcoming court appearance of Swaner, but then took it down. The station has since reported the story on its 5:00 p.m. news and has reposted the story to its website.

According to WTHI, preliminary charges of misdemeanor domestic battery have been filed against Swaner after he and his wife reportedly got into an argument Friday.

WTHI said when police arrived, Swaner’s wife had blood on her face and cut over her eye.  Both Swaner and his wife told police she was injured after running into a door. The station said the judge in the case is not allowing contact between the couple. Swaner is due back in court Thursday. Read more

Terre Haute’s WTHI Gets New Home and New Look

After more than fifty years in its old home WTHI, Terre Haute’s CBS and FOX affiliate, will move into a modern new facility this weekend.

“The new digital television station is a commitment to our community, viewers and advertisers.  We are also very pleased to be part of the ongoing revitalization of downtown Terre Haute,”  Todd Weber, vice president and general manager of WTHI said in a statement.  “WTHI-TV has long been a fixture in the landscape of downtown and we felt it was important to remain there.  LIN Media supported us in that decision.”

Weber told TVSpy the station will broadcast from the old building at 918 Ohio street for the last time Friday night and begin broadcasting from its new building Saturday morning.  The official HD launch will be Monday, though viewers will be able to see the station in HD beginning with Saturday’s 11 p.m. newscast.  You can view pictures of the construction on the new building after the jump.
