Sports shake-up in Jacksonville…

As Florida News Center had reported last night, WTLV/WJXX sports director Dan Hicken (right #1) is leaving the Jacksonville duopoly after twenty seven years with the station. Rumor had it that Hicken was headed to duopoly WTEV/WAWS to join their sports department. That move opened the door for questions of what was happening to the sports department over at WTEV/WAWS.

Now, multiple sources tell Florida News Center that WTEV/WAWS and sports director Steve Wrigley (right#2) have parted ways. Sports anchor/reporter Brent Martineau (right #3) will take over as sports director at the station. So far there is no word on why Wrigley is departing the duopoly.

Sources also confirm that Dan Hicken will in-fact be joining the sports department at WTEV/WAWS to fill the number 2 position, left open by Martineau.

Stay tuned to Florida News Center for any further developments.    //hattip to Anonymous

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.

So if Sam Kouvaris is correct, does this mean that Dan Hicken might bump current WTEV/WAWS sports director Steve Wrigley for the top spot in sports or will he be replacing one of the other three faces at “Action Sports?” Stay tuned to FLNewsCenter.com for the latest.

Comings and Goings…

WFTV reporter/anchor Robert Maxwell is leaving the Orlando station to join KTVX ABC 4 in Salt Lake City. He joined WFTV in 2006 and will start anchoring at KTVX on Monday 9/21. An interesting note about Maxwell…he is from Ottawa, Ontario and once worked at Canada’s “The Weather Network.”

Steve Wrigley joins Jacksonville’s WTEV/WAWS as Sports Director/anchor. Wrigley was formerly at Nashville’s WSMV.
