WPXI-TV (11) News director Corrie Harding is out of the job tonight after he and General Manager Ray Carter came to a mutual decision today. Carter tells the Post-Gazette that the ratings weren’t terrible, but it became necessary to make a change. Assistant News Director Melissa Knollinger was let go under similar circumstances a couple weeks ago. During the search for a new news director, Carter will oversee things in the newsroom which he says will give him the opportunity to see what’s effective and what needs work.

Harding had been with the station since 2005.
