Musical chairs at WBBH/WZVN…

(edited from News-Press.com) – Many local television viewers know that WZVN ABC7 and WBBH NBC2 are both operated by Waterman Broadcasting. Due to this close relationship between the stations, sometimes managers will pull the old switcheroo on us.

(from News-Press.com) - Summer is normally a time to take it easy and relax, but managers at Waterman Broadcasting have shuffled staff around and given some folks new duties.

According to Darrel Lieze-Adams, who is the news director for WZVN ABC7 and WBBH NBC2, anchor Len Jennings (left) will fill in on the NBC2 4 p.m. newscast all summer. Meanwhile, anchor Craig Wolf (right) will fill in on the station’s 11 p.m. newscast.

On top of that, Jennings will now solo anchor the ABC7 6 and 11 p.m. newscasts. His co-anchor, Stacey Deffenbaugh (left), has been moved to weekend mornings where she will anchor the ABC7 and NBC2 morning newscasts….Cont….
