Raycom Media Promotes Nancy Kent-Smith, Frank Jones

Raycom Media has promoted Nancy Kent-Smith and Frank Jones in Richmond, Va.

Kent-Smith, who has been news director of WWBT-WUPW, Raycom’s NBC and CW affiliates in Richmond, will become the company’s regional news director. In her new role, she will have oversight of WWBT-WUPW as well as WOIO-WUAB in Cleveland, WTOL-WUPW in Toledo, WXIX in Cincinnatti, KOLD in Tucscon, WTNZ in Knoxville and WFLX in West Palm Beach.

As Kent-Smith transitions into her new role, she will be replaced at WWBT-WUPW by Jones, who joined the stations in 1992 as a producer. He has served as executive news producer and, most recently, assistant news director.

“We have an amazing group of people here at NBC12 and this is a great opportunity. It is a competitive market and I couldn’t ask for a better staff,” Jones said in a statement. “They are dedicated and determined and I look forward to my new role leading Richmond’s number one news team.”

WUPW to Debut Morning Newscast in June

A new weekday morning newscast will premiere on Toledo Fox-affiliate WUPW June 11, according to the Toledo Blade.

WUPW recently merged with CBS-affiliate WTOL as part of a shared services agreement in Toledo. The hour-long newscast will feature an anchor new to Toledo and existing WTOL-WUPW personnel, according to the Blade.

WPUW will also transition to high definition ahead of the newscast’s premiere next month.
