Dan Hicken to depart WTLV/WJXX…

WTLV/WJXX announced today via Twitter that Sports Director Dan Hicken is leaving the Jacksonville duopoly. Hicken had been with WTLV (later WTLV/WJXX) for twenty seven years prior to this announcement.

So far no official word has been released on why Hicken is leaving the station. However, Sam Kouvaris, the sports director across the street at WJXT tweeted today that Hicken was headed to the “Cox TV stations here in town.” Of course by that Kouvaris means the duopoly of WTEV/WAWS, which was scooped up by Cox in Dec 2012.
