KANSAS CITY, MO. -- Former NBC3 (WSTM) news director Peggy Philip has exited Kansas City NBC affiliate KSHB after more than three years at the Scripps-owned station. According to Bottom Line Communications, Philip's exit comes just a month after the GM announced his retirement. The site calls the change, "surprising because ratings have been the highest in years at KSHB." Philip ran the WSTM newsroom for 17 months, about five years ago.
