KNOE/Monroe, LA ND to KTAL
According to a tipster, Andrew Pontz, news director at KNOE in Monroe, LA is moving to KTAL, News Channel 6 as news director. The tipster says, "Pontz announced to KNOE he's leaving at Thanksgiving..." Pontz replaces Sean Kennedy who is off to to become assistant ND at McGraw Hill's KGTV-10-ABC in San Diego.
Additional: Another tipster adds this : "Former KTBS News Director Andrew Pontz, who worked in Shreveport for decades, is returning to the market - to KTAL. If memory serves me right, Pontz was fired by KTBS owner Edwin Wray after buying a second satellite truck in the early 90's. Pontz went to Bryan/College Station and is now at Monroe at CBS powerhouse KNOE. I don't believe either KTAL or KNOE has announced this."
