Former Fox25 traffic reporter Doug Meehan has landed a new TV job in Phoenix. The popular TV guy-turned-radio host announced late Wednesday night that he has taken a job with KPNX, the NBC affiliate in Phoenix, where he will co-anchor the station’s morning newscast.
After being let go from the Fox O&O in 2010 after a local news service between Fox25 and WBZ grounded the station’s helicopter, Meehan resurfaced at FM talker WTKK where he hosted a talk show. Following his departure from the station amid swirling rumors of a format change by owner Greater Media, Meehan teased a move back to TV. His first day working mornings will be January 14th.
