It looks like change is in the air at NBC Action News station KSHB with sources telling Bottom Line Communications that News Director Peggy Phillip is no longer with the NBC affiliate.
The move is surprising because ratings have been the highest in years at KSHB. Last month GM Mike Vrbac announced that he was retiring after a very short tenure at the station after 40 years.
Phillip joined the E.W. Scripps station in June 2009 and brought more than 30 years experience to the position.
She came to KSHB from WMAR in Baltimore where she served as News Director for a year. She had previously spent 17 months at WSTM in Syracuse and 8 1/2 years at WMC-TV in Memphis as those stations’ News Director.
She began her news career at KTVN in Reno where she spent 11 years.
