Jeff White, VP and general manager of WISH Indianapolis, has departed the station. White was named general manager of the CBS affiliate in 2005.

Parent LIN Media did not give a reason for his departure or announce a successor.

The Indianapolis Business Journal reported that White’s departure followed a number of high level exits on both sides of the camera. News director Patti McGettigan left in 2012.

Revenue has decreased significantly at the station since 2009, according to BIA/Kelsey.

Indianapolis is DMA No. 26. WTHR sets the pace there.
