Dennis Welch Joins KTVK as Political Editor

KTVK, the independent station in Phoenix, has hired Dennis Welch as political editor, TVNewsCheck reports. He will begin June 1.

Welch will oversee the station’s political coverage and co-host “Politics Unplugged,” the station’s political affairs show. He joins KTVK from the Arizona Guardian, where he was owner and editor. He has been a frequent guest on “Politics Unplugged” for the past several years.

“Dennis gives us a first-rate political reporter who really knows Arizona’s political landscape,” executive news director Brad Remington said “3TV has made a huge commitment to covering politics and government these past three years with the launch of ‘Politics Unplugged,’ the staging of political debates, and improved day-to-day coverage. We believe the hiring of Dennis shows just how seriously we take this commitment.”
