Former WMC News Director Heads to Syracuse

Posted By on Mon, Feb 26, 2007 at 4:00 AM

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.
