Sports Guy Moving Over to News

WKRC Sports Director Brad Johansen is going back to the future.

Johnansen is moving from Sports Anchor to News Anchor, the same job he heald when he started at the station in 1992.

In making the move to news, Johansen will also give up his CBS Sports Network play-by-play job.

"The CBS football schedule made it really difficult to manage for both the station and CBS," Johansen said Tuesday. He debuts Sept. 8 on the 4 p.m. news, which Kit Andrews anchored before leaving the station in late July.

The station will begin a search for a news Sports Director, said Jon Lawhead, general manager of the Sinclair station.

Lawhead said Johansen "was interested into taking the next step in his career. I've seen the stories he's done for sports, and as news director Kirk Varner said, he's an incredible storyteller."
