Fired News Director to appear on Final Edition on KUWS
Television news veterans will gather to talk about the state of broadcast news in the Twin Ports on "Final Edition" at 5 p.m. Friday on KUWS-FM. This comes on the heels of the sudden firing this week of KQDS Fox 21 News Director Julie Moravchik. Moravchik will join University of Wisconsin-Superior Journalism Senior Lecturer Joel Anderson, former television and radio reporter Duke Skorich along with Wisconsin Public Radio reporter Mike Simonson.
Moravchik was dismissed by Fox 21 this week after starting the news operation there in early 2007. Anderson was the news director at both WDIO-TV and KDLH-TV before joining the faculty at UW-Superior. Skorich has been a broadcast reporter, anchor and news director since the 1960's.
Final Edition airs Friday afternoons at 5 p.m. on Wisconsin Public Radio station KUWS-FM (91.3 Superior, 102.9 Ashland).
