**Update to this story: Nunley ended up in Salt Lake City at FOX 13 KSTU —
Everyone is out at KTUL/Tulsa, including recent addition, Christopher Nunley. Nunley, ex-KING 5 weathercaster, left Seattle to return home to be close to his ailing father. Nunley accepted the Chief Meteorologist position at KTUL a sort time later. In recent weeks, Sinclair Broadcast Group, owners of KTUL/Tulsa, laid off the entire news team and the station will be getting its newscasts from a Sinclair tv channel in Oklahoma City.
KTUL, Channel 8, the city’s Sinclair Broadcast Group-owned ABC affiliate, announced that all news the station airs will soon be produced out of Oklahoma City, although local content from Tulsa-based reporters will still be featured.
“Beginning December 11 we will be making changes to the way we produce news in Tulsa and refocusing our resources, establishing a regional content center to super serve the Tulsa and Oklahoma City television markets,” KTUL said in a statement. “This will allow hyperlocal news and weather content from both markets, as well as regional content, to be included in every newscast.”
The statement went on: “News airing on KTUL will now be produced out of our Oklahoma City content center, and will include live, local content with local reporters from Tulsa, paired with the resources of our content center at KOKH/KOCB. (Tulsaworld.com)
