Good news to report concerning one of the good guys in local media.
Longtime TV 50 anchor and reporter John Wesley Moore is going to work for WWNY-TV.
No word on what Mr. Moore's duties will be, but if you ask me (and they aren't) he should be anchoring the 10PM and 11PM casts.
John has credibility, knowledge of the area and is a stable, dependable performer.
I first met John in the early 80's when he was in Ogdensburg radio and I was looking to hire a St. Lawrence County reporter to TV 7....John Friot got the job in what was really a flip of the coin choice and I was glad to be at TV 50 in 1987 when that news department started and John was hired.
John is a Lisbon native and is known for his GQ appearance. Sort of a John McHugh of local television.
The decision to hire John Moore is a sound one and will help Channel 7 by providing the affore mentioned traits to their on-air image.
