Starting in March, NBC6 will have a new executive producer by the name Jose Suarez. He comes from Toledo, Ohio where he was the News Director for Fox affiliate WUPW.
With him chances are the days of slow paced, calm NBC6 are probably over. If you thought WFOR looked and copied WSVN soon you probably won’t recognize WTVJ. His 3 year stint at WUPW has been an interesting one to say the least. As the station’s News Director he made the station devote two and a half hours of commercial free “breaking news” coverage of a puppy trapped in a six inch diameter pipe. Insiders tell me that Suarez is known to be a very aggressive and very sensational guy so it won’t be huge stretch saying look for a 7-ized NBC6 very soon.
Thanks to one of my regular insiders for the heads up on this news
