FORMER LOUISVILLE ANCHOR GETS A QUICK PROMOTION

Former anchor Renee Murphy made her tearful goodbyes last month at Tegna’s WHAS in Louisville after 15 years.

Now it’s all smiles as her new employer has already given her a promotion.

She’s the new chief of communications and community relations for Jefferson County Schools in Louisville after spending all of a month work on parent outreach.

She’s stepping into a hot spot.

Murphy takes over the district’s communications as JCPS negotiates with the state about a possible deal to avoid a full takeover of the district following an audit that found a range of deficiencies.

Wonder if the audit covered the $143,000+ she’ll be making in the post – a better-than 4% increase over her predecessor?
