WZTV in Nashville has named a new News Director for the station.

Bryan McGruder is the new ND at this Fox Affiliate station, which is owned by Sinclair.

McGruder previously served as vice president of news for WDAF-TV, the Fox affiliate in Kansas City, Mo.

“We are excited to have someone of Brian’s stature and experience leading our news department at FOX17 and look forward to the impact he will have on the market. His experience running highly successful newsrooms will be a huge asset to our operations” says Dominic Mancuso, General Manager of WZTV.

"I'm happy to be back in the South and looking forward to helping a great team meet its goals and aspirations" said McGruder.

Really? This is a quote from the station's news release, did McGruder really say that quote? "....helping a great team meet its goals and aspirations" Come on! this is just some quote made up by the Creative Services Department....Right? 

If I worked at a station and the new News Director was quoted as saying he wants to help us "meet our goals and aspirations," I'd say "great, my goal is to find another job, where my News Director doesn't talk like this".
