WHNT (Huntsville) Reporter Daniela Perallon is leaving the station and TV news altogether.
Perallon has accepted a role as the Public Relations/Marketing manager for The Arts Council which is just down the road from the station.
“We hate to lose Daniela. But, we are thrilled for her,” said Denise Vickers, WHNT Station Manager and News Director. “She has done a tremendous job for us since joining our team. And, will soon be able to apply her multimedia background and skill set to do tremendous work for The Arts Council.”
The Arts Council works to promote local arts, culture, and entertainment, as well as educate the community about different artists and events.
“We have so enjoyed working with Daniela during her time at WHNT and we respect her passion for Huntsville’s arts and entertainment community,” said Allison Dillon-Jauken, President of the Arts Council. “We’re eager to bring her digital storytelling and communication skills to The Arts Council along with her passion for our Huntsville region.”
"To my family here at WHNT News 19, this station has given me so much personally and professionally, and for that I am forever thankful. It’s a comfort to know this ‘goodbye’ is only taking me a few blocks away," Perallon said in a note.
