Weather Channel Veteran Rashida Jones Tapped as WIS’s New News Director

Rashida Jones, who has served as director of live programming at The Weather Channel since 2009 (and is not the actress daughter of Quincy Jones known for roles on “The Office” and “Parks and Recreation”), has been tapped to lead the newsroom at WIS, a Raycom-owned NBC-affiliate in Columbia, SC.

WIS general manager Donita Todd confirmed the move to TVSpy today, saying that Jones’s first day as WIS’s news content director will be August 1st.

She is replacing Brad Neuhoff, who departed WIS this month to become the news director at KOIN in Portland, OR.
