WCPO GM Thaxton Departing
Giving up station management to teach and consult
By Michael Malone -- Broadcasting & Cable, 1/3/2013 4:56:31 PMaccording to Cincinnati.com. He starts Jan. 7 as an interim general manager at Scripps-owned WEWS and begins a transition to teaching and consulting, reports Cincinnati.com, which adds that Sam Rosenwasser, the GM at WEWS, is out on medical leave.
Thaxton arrived in Cincinnati in March 2011 after Bill Fee resigned. He'd previously run Gannett's WCSH Portland (Maine).
WCPO isn't the only GM vacancy in DMA No. 35. WKRC's Les Vann departed his post after Sinclair acquired the station last month.
