Columbus News Director Headed to WISH in Indianapolis

FTVLive FIRST told you back on April 9th that Steve Bray was leaving as News Director of WISH in Indianapolis. 

Now, FTVLive is FIRST to tell you who the new ND at WISH will be.

WBNS News Director Elbert Tucker is headed to Indianapolis to be the station's next News Director.

Tucker has been the ND in Columbus since 2010.

Here is the internal email that Tucker sent to the staff at WBNS:


After five years at 10TV, it is time for me to take the next step in my career. I have accepted an offer to become news director at WISH-TV in Indianapolis.

The decision to leave a newsroom I have admired and respected from day one did not come easily, especially because you are more than co-workers to me. But with our son graduating high school, my wife and I decided we’re ready for our next adventure.

We’ve done some great things together here – the kind of coverage and storytelling you don’t forget. The Knox County tragedy, the Zanesville animal escape, a Christmas vacation snowstorm, the 2012 presidential election and a Buckeyes National Championship, just to name a few. 

I would like to thank John Cardenas and the senior leadership at The Dispatch. I am grateful for the opportunities given to me here and I would like to thank all of you, especially the newsroom managers, for making this such a great experience.

I will always be at your service.
