Setters Leaves WLW For WLWT

After free-lancing for WLWT-TV (Channel 5) since October, Andrew Setters has made the move permanent.

Today is Setters' last day as WLW-AM (700) assignment editor and anchor. The 10-year radio veteran starts Monday at Channel 5 as an evening news general assignment reporter.

"The biggest change is that I won't be able to wear jeans to work, like I've been able to get away with at the Big One. But after years of working early mornings, I'll finally get to sleep in some," says Setters, 31.

"I've had 10 years with 700 WLW and the people here are great, so yeah, it was a tough decision to leave... Over the past six months of working both jobs, everyone with Ch 5 has been really welcoming. I'm eager to get started, and I can't wait to see what comes next."

I thought Setters adapted very well to TV, as others have done over the years (John London, Brian Patrick, Tricia Macke, Edie Magnus, Dan Carroll). He should prove to be a valuable, knowledgeable addition to News 5.

Congrats to Andrew! WLWT is lucky to have snagged him.

Setters should be a good addition to the News 5 team. I see them getting better and better over the past couple months.

NOw only if the Brandi chick from 700 WlW would get lost. I can't stand hearing her say "WLW" 35 times in a 30 second spot.

Have you ever noticed how many times they say "Newsradio 700 WLW" or "in depth team coverage" in a so-called 5 minutes newscast of the little one 700 WLW. That is because they dont report, they just fill 5 minutes of time. This radio market is soooooooooo sad.

Unclear who this young Andrew is, but what is clear is that WLW-AM,
simply does not field an actual "newsroom" any longer.
They plagiarize off Channel 12.
It's hilarious and disgusting.

Great news for Setters but the big one is losing a good one. They'll need find a good replacement.

At Channel 5, Setters will at least be doing NEWS.

ANON 2:29 hit it on the nail about WLW taking everything from Channel 12. The Little One's news READERS are busy recording their alledged news for many other smaller CC stations in the midwest.

That why you hear so many mistakes.

You would think as many times as they repeat the same stories, they'd be able to get 'em right once in a while.

A classy guy when I've seen him in the field, I'm glad he's getting the chance. Hopefully 5 won't rip his soul out, like it's been known to do.

Andrew is just one of many who have left a "sinking" Clear Channel ship. Good move.

In five years, local news on 'The Big One" will no longer exsist. Instead, the top of the hour will be dedicated to some idiot paying money to go on the air and talk about his latest Ronco invention.

Or, we will have more of Eddie & Tracy telling us who is passing gas in the hallways of local establishments.

That is what we call "In Depth Team Coverage, 2008 style".

Good luck Andrew...he will be missed. Now if Darryl would leave.

I can tell you first hand from having the pleasure of working with Andrew for 2.5 years in the newsroom at 700WLW, he's a first class high caliber news-guy. Andrew, congrats and good luck. I know you'll do extremely well!

Andrew is leaving one sinking ship to another sunken ship. Too bad he is not going to 9 or 12 where more people will see his work. He does a good job. Good Luck Andrew!!!

Big producer shakeup on WLW. Willie's producer gets demoted to nights.

The Stooge Report will never be the same without Mixmaster D. Good luck to Dan G. on evenings. I hope the running the Reds broadcasts keep him awake! Maybe some of those Stooge Report soundbites will liven up those Reds losses....

I think more people will be tuning in to 5 just to check him out. Have you seen this guy? Finally, some eye-candy for the ladies in the Cinci news market. FINALLY.
