WDRB’s Eric Crawford on Transitioning to TV

Louisville’s WDRB recently announced two new hires in the sports department, Eric Crawford and Rick Bozich. The pair joined the station from the Courier-Journal, where both have made a long career in the print medium. “The shrinking of a newspaper I grew up with and loved was not something I cared to watch from the inside any longer,” Crawford writes on WRDB’s website:

WDRB is Louisville’s lone remaining locally run major, 7-day-a-week news organization. It is owned by an out-of-town company, yes, but it alone, more than any daily newspaper, television or radio station, has the ability to plot its own course.

As other news organizations have grown leaner, WDRB has maintained its personnel strength and even expanded. While others have cut back on resources to local sports, WDRB has added staff and increased its travel. While everyone else is waiting for corporate orders on what to cut next, WDRB is going the other direction, emphatically.

I am living proof. It’s why I am here, and why my longtime C-J colleague Rick Bozich is here.
