It was back in January of 2018 that one-time tv news wunderkind Joel Cheatwood showed up at Tegna as the group’s corporate vice president of content development.

This after  a past that included executive positions at CBS News, CNN, Fox News, and Glenn Beck’s barely-surviving “The Blaze” before launching his own consulting venture.

That venture lasted for three years before he landed at Tegna.


And now he’s taking off again.

Nothing specific about those “new professional challenges.”

But, given his past predilections, we’re betting hard news….real news….is not in the cards.
