He will be replaced by Andrea Stahlman at WLKY.
"WLWT News 5 is fortunate to welcome a news director with Mike's extensive experience and outstanding track record of success," said Richard Dyer, WLWT president and general manager. "With his exceptional leadership skills and strong news instincts, Mike is perfectly suited to build on the foundation of ratings growth and momentum for WLWT News 5."
Neelly started at WLKY in March 1997 as assistant news director after stints at WBBH-WZVN Ft. Myers and WCSH Portland.
"I have been very fortunate to have spent the past 12 years working at a great Hearst station in Louisville where we fought our way to news leadership," said Neelly. "To now be able to move to WLWT is very special. I look forward to working with the talented WLWT News 5 team and building on the foundation of growth and momentum. Cincinnati is a wonderful fit for my family and me and keeps us in a region we have grown to love for nearly two decades."
Stahlman, WLKY's longtime assistant news director, starts Nov. 12 in her new role.
"For the past 12 years as WLKY's assistant news director, Andrea has played a key role in WLKY's tremendous success," said Glenn Haygood, WLKY president/general manager. "Her promotion is well deserved recognition of her solid news judgment, commitment to journalistic ethics, and her dedication to the principles that make Hearst Television a leader in our industry."
Stahlman began her career at WLKY in late 1993 as weekend assignment editor.
"The opportunity to guide Greater Louisville's most honored news team is both exciting and humbling," said Stahlman. "Whether it's on-air, on our website or on your mobile device, I look forward to building upon the great efforts that have already been established, and to continuing to provide local viewers with the kind of quality journalism that serves them well in their daily lives."
