Sources tell Florida News Center that Gray Television has abruptly fired WJHG News Director, Mark Wildman. Multiple sources tell us that Wildman had several angry out bursts towards staff, during last weeks Friday morning newscasts. Wildman was relieved of his duties, yesterday during the 5pm newscast. No other reason was given for his sudden departure from the station.
As Florida News Center reported this past December (12/10), Wildman joined WJHG from Macon, GA’s WMGT-TV. He replaced former multitasking anchor/News Director Tom Lewis, who announced in back Sept (9/10) that he was stepping down as News Director to spend more time with his family. Lewis still remains the station’s primary anchor.
Stay tuned for further information.
