Shaking up the Staff in Miami


FTVLive told you about the weather shake up that went down at WPLG in Miami to make way for incoming weather anchor Julie Durda.

But that wasn't the only changes to hit the Post Newsweek station.

According to an Internal Memo obtained by FTVLive there is a bit of a shake up going down off air as well.

The biggest involves newly hired EP Peggy Phillip. 

Phillip, a former Kansas City News Director was hired as the EP of the morning show. But, after just a short stint at the station, she's being bumped up the food chain to Managing Editor at the station. 

And then there are a number of changes in the Producer ranks.

Here is the internal email sent to the staff:
