Print Reporters Takes TV Gig


It appears that the print reporters are seeing the writing on the wall and making the  move over to the TV side.

Veteran South Dakota print journalist Kevin Woster has joined KELO and will report on air and online from the CBS affiliate's Rapid City bureau.

Woster left the Rapid City Journal last month. He worked previously in Sioux Falls and Pierre.

KELOLAND-TV Vice President and General Manager Jay Huizenga says Woster brings a wealth of experience and reporting skills to the station.

Woster says he looks "forward to learning the broadcast side of covering the news."

Over in Louisville, not one but two print people are jumping to TV. 

Two Courier-Journal reporters left have left the newspaper to work for WDRB.

Marcus Green and Jason Riley both joining WDRB-TV to write for the station's website,

At The Courier-Journal, Riley covered state courts, and Green covered growth and development.

WDRB GM Bill Lamb said Riley and Green will cover similar topics at the Courier-Journal, including the Ohio River Bridges project, the KFC Yum! Center and the judicial system.

“But they’re also going to have the opportunity to work on some longer-term, more in-depth stories,” Lamb said. “And everything they’re doing is going to go on and some of what they do will be on TV.”
