Former WMC News Director Heads to Syracuse

After eight years, former WMC-TV Channel 5 news director Peggy Phillip is leaving Memphis, the 44th ranked TV market, to be the news director of WSTM-NBC3 and WSTQ-CW6, the Barrington Broadcasting Group duopoly in Syracuse, NY, the 79th ranked market. She starts next week.

Indeed, she's worked in Tulsa, the 62nd market, as well as Chicago (#3), Boston (#7) and Miami (#16). “The bigger the market size, the more egos there are to get in the way,” said Phillip, who just turned 50 and is looking for a greater sense of purpose.
