Crossing the Street in the Big Easy

Juan Kincaid, who left New Orleans CBS affiliate WWL earlier this month, will join Fox affiliate WVUE as sports director, the station announced in Today.

 Kincaid replaces Fred Hickman, who recently left WVUE.

Interestingly in the WVUE announcement, the station never mentioned WWL, because God knows all the viewers would immediately turn to that station. 

Kincaid had been at the station for 14 years before leaving. 

"We couldn't be more excited to have Juan join our award-winning sports team," said Mikel Schaefer, WVUE's news director, in the station's press release.

Kincaid must sit out a noncompete clause in his WWL contract, and will work behind the scenes at WVUE until making his July debut on WVUE's newscasts.
