WTOL in Toledo has named Anthony Knopps as its news director.
Knopps spent more than a dozen years across the street at WTVG as the Assistant News Director.
In a statement issued Monday, WTOL Vice President Brian Lorenzen said it was Knopps’ impressive “success with previous challenges and desire to lead” that caught his attention.
He played a major role in bumping KRQE, a CBS affiliate in Albuquerque, from No. 3 to the top spot in market. He also has worked for KCTV in Kansas City and KFVS in Cape Girardeau.
The change in leadership comes following the departure of CJ Hoyt, who left the news director post at the end of June.
