Roger Brown is Back!

WOIO Channel 19 has hired former Plain Dealer sports columnist Roger Brown to do “Roger Brown’s Insider Report.”  His segment, seen Mondays and Thursdays, debuts Monday, Jan. 15 on “19 Action News at Five.”  “Channel 19 is definitely the most provocative and most willing to push the envelope.  I definitely fit in with that,” Brown said.  His segments will encompass sports, news, politics and more.  Brown was among about 60 Plain Dealer newsroom employees who accepted a buyout package in an effort to cut costs.  He left the newspaper in late November after 19 years.
