Crossing the Street in Seattle

KCPQ is adding another Reporter to the staff as the station to launch a new 11PM newscast next month.

Their latest hire didn't even have to change his home address. Adam Mertz, who worked across the street at KING, is headed over to KCPQ.

Here is the internal memo obtained from FTVLive, from News Director Eric Hill:

I have a new addition to announce to our reporting team!

Adam Mertz is joining us on Monday August 4th.

Adam has been a reporter at KING for the last year and before that worked at KFOR in Oklahoma City and KYMA in Arizona.

I’m very excited to have Adam on board, he is a great storyteller and very solid journalist.

Please join me in welcoming Adam to our team!
