ND Out the Door in Cleveland

FTVLive FIRST reported that WOIO News Director Dan Salamone was out the door at the Raycom station by the end of the week.

Salamone has been at the station for 9 years.

"That's a long time, and this is the right time to look for a new challenge," Salamone said to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "I haven't decided what the next step will be, but there are a few things I'm considering and I anticipate staying in the business. I'm looking at a number of options, and the next move likely will be out of the market."

Sources tell FTVLive that Salmone's leaving was not his idea and he was pushed out.
