Joe DeFeo named news director at NewsChannel 8


DeFeo is replacing Steve Chaggaris, who left about two months ago. Chaggaris had been vp of cable news during the re-branding of NewsChannel 8 as part of Allbritton’s TBD news multi-media brand, incorporating broadcast TV, cable TV, and the Web. Albritton restored the NewsChannel 8 name to the cable TV station last February.

DeFeo spent seven years as the vp for news for the Sinclair Broadcast Group and worked for more than 9 years as news director at WBFF in Baltimore.
