WTTG News Director Phil Metlin Retires
Phil Metlin, VP and news director of Fox O&O WTTG Washington since 2010, announced his retirement Thursday.
“I feel blessed to have had the chance to associate with so many great journalists over the past two decades here at Fox. Looking back, I am in awe of the things we witnessed together. Great work was produced and I’m proud of what we accomplished. I wish nothing but the best for all my colleagues throughout the company.”
