“I’m truly honored to be the news director at the station in my hometown. WYMT is a special place and I hope to continue the tradition of excellence demanded by those before me in this position like Tony Turner and Neil Middleton,” Hensley told TVSpy. “I’m looking forward to the challenges and exciting times ahead.”

Middleton, who has been at WYMT since 2002, succeeds Ernestine Cornett, WYMT’s longtime general manager who retired earlier this month.
“Neil’s passion and commitment to serving WYMT viewers and advertisers makes him the perfect choice to be the next leader of WYMT,” Gray Television regional vice president Wayne Martin said in a statement.
Steve Hensley, who anchors the evening newscasts, will assume Middleton’s responsibility in the newsroom in his new role of assistant news director. He will continue to anchor the 4 and 6 p.m. newscasts, but will step down from the 11 p.m. newscast later this year.
