Gavin Maliska Tapped as WJHG News Director

Gavin Maliska is returning to Florida as news director of WJHG, an NBC-affiliate in Panama City.

Maliska led the newsroom at Orlando Fox O&O WOFL for a year before being let go in 2009. Most recently, he served as ND for KECI, an NBC-affiliate in Missoula, MT.

WJHG has been searching for a news director since March, when the station abruptly fired Mark Wildman after just three months. Wildman was reportedly prone to angry outbursts.

Before joining WOFL, Maliska worked as news director at Indianapolis’s WXIN.
