WJLA Names Doug Culver VP of News
Will join Allbritton D.C. ABC affil July 8

Culver comes to the station from WFTS-TV, the Scripps ABC affiliate in Tampa. "Doug has a great track record of success as a newsroom leader and as a journalist," said WJLA-TV GM Bill Lord in a statement. "He will be a welcome addition to our strong management team."
Culver starts July 9.
Culver is no stranger to major markets or the station. He was a freelance producer for WJLA before getting the Tampa job. Before that, he had senior news posts at KIRO Seattle and NBC O&O KNBC Los Angeles. It is also a reunion with Lord, who was VP, news, at WJLA, before being named to head the station -- a post that had been vacant since then -- and also had top news posts at KIRO and KNBC.
Other than WJLA hiring Culver as their new news director... I'm hoping that a new news set could and might be in the works for WJLA.
I've noticed other US TV stations getting new news sets... KUSA Denver and WTVJ Miami are in the process of getting new sets. WJLA is needing a new set.
