KYW Philadelphia News Director Schiller Gives Notice

Susan Schiller, who’s been the VP/news director at KYW-WPSG Philadelphia for over a decade, will depart the CBS-owned station in the next few weeks, according to Rick Gevers’ Newsletter. A Philadelphia native, she’s spent her entire career with CBS.

A memo sent to the other news directors in the group says she wants to “smell the roses,” reports Gevers’ Newsletter.

Before joining KYW, Schiller was a producer of the “Eye on America” segments for the CBS Evening News with Dan Rather, as well as a medical producer for the broadcast since 1998. Previously, Schiller was a senior producer on CBS This Morning and a news producer for WCAU Philadelphia (a former CBS station) and KMOX St. Louis.

Michael Malone, senior content producer at B+C/Multichannel News, covers network programming, including entertainment, news and sports on broadcast, cable and streaming; and local broadcast television. He hosts the podcasts Busted Pilot, about what’s new in television, and Series Business, a chat with the creator of a new program, and writes the column “The Watchman.” He joined B+C in 2005. His journalism has also appeared in The New York Times, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Playboy and New York magazine.
