The Toledo Blade said five managers, including Nizamis, shifted from WPTA to new positions atop Sinclair’s WNWO. Among them, Charity Freeman has been named general sales manager, and Nicole Hahn has been named news director. Hahn replaces Jim Blue, who will continue to anchor and becomes managing editor, said the Blade.
Nizamis was not available for comment at presstime.
