KPRC 2 hires EP Aaron Wische from KNXV Phoenix

Aaron Wische, the Executive Producer of Special Projects/I-Team for KNXV Phoenix, announced he is coming to Houston.

Wishce will be the Executive Producer of Special Projects for KPRC 2. He even has history at the Post-Newsweek station.

"I was a KPRC intern in 1995," Wishce tweeted. "Now I get to work there!"

According to LinkedIn, The Syracuse University graduate went on to work in the following roles for such stations as:

Executive Producer, Special Projects at KTVT-TV
Executive Producer, Special Projects at WTTG-TV
Executive Producer, Special Projects and Investigations at WFTS-TV
Special Projects Manager at WEWS-TV
Newscast Producer at KRIV-TV
Newscast Producer at KOTV

Wishce's account also says he currently runs a specialized unit of 12 producers, reporters, photographers and editors who work on long form investigative and consumer investigative stories for the ABC affiliate in Phoenix, AZ. Does this mean a big change for KPRC?

He's won awards like the Columbia duPont Silver Baton, IRE Certificate, National Headliner Awards and a National Emmy Nomination for investigative reporting. And if this were a dating website, you might want to know he has an interest in in growing viewership online and on television through social media engagement and marketing.

I noticed that Wishce worked for KTVT in Dallas-Fort Worth. That just so happens to be the station that KPRC hired its assistant news director Chris Best in January. COMMENT: Click to leave your thoughts on this post here
