“I just needed more opportunity overall,” Hamilton told the Cincinnati Enquirer. “General assignment reporting and hard news isn’t what I want to do. In the long run I want to get into hosting, but Phoenix is giving me the opportunity to be a special assignment reporter and let my creativity shine, therefore I will get some more hosting-like experience.”
Hamilton has been at WLWT since 2008. His last day at the station will be November 23.
