LEXINGTON, Ky. — ABC 36 General Manager Chris Aldridge announced the hiring of a new leader of the news department for WTVQ ABC 36. Longtime TV journalist Miranda Combs will take the post.
“We’re looking at changing times in the landscape of television news. Miranda brings extensive experience in tv, government and private sector work that led us to this decision,” Aldridge said. “We are thrilled to have her caliber of journalism and friendships with people all over the state on our team.”
