Settle sign off: Newsplex anchor heads to capital
Newsplex news director/VP Jeremy Settle, who moved to Charlottesville four years ago to work with the upstart WCAV and start news programs on WVAW and WAHU, has moved back to the Washington, DC, area from whence he came.
"They contacted me," says Settle. "I had planned to stay in Charlottesville, but they made me an offer I couldn't refuse." An added bonus: he moves from a 183 media market to number 9 and back to his home town. "It was a perfect fit for them and me."
"We'll absolutely miss Jeremy," says Newsplex general manager Brad Ramsey. "He put his heart and soul into this place for four years, getting three stations off the ground."
"I kind of wanted to ratchet it down a little, but that's not going to happen for awhile," says Settle.
Especially not with an inauguration coming in the nation's capital.
