Make it four for four. When WCPO Cincinnati News Director Alex Bongiorno announced Tuesday she would be leaving the Scripps-owned ABC affiliate in early March, she’ll be the fourth of the market’s four TV newsroom bosses to step down in eight months.
The Scripps-owned ABC affiliate in Cincinnati has hired former WTAE Pittsburgh ND Alex Bongiorno to replace Lane Michaelsen who left in March.
Alex Bongiorno, news director at the Hearst-owned Pittsburgh ABC affiliate WTAE since March 2009, will depart the station next week. “Alex has decided to leave. I’m not sure if she is going to another job,” said the station’s GM Michael Hayes. “She decided to leave the market for personal and family reasons.”
