Rosenwasser Resigns as WEWS GM

Sam Rosenwasser has resigned his general manager post at WEWS Cleveland. His last day is Dec. 15.

Rosenwasser, 61, cited "an unbelievable health situation" in the Cleveland Plain Dealer. His intestines were punctured during hip replacement surgery, notes the paper, which led to peritonitis, a three-month stay in the hospital, and major rehabilitation.

Parent company Scripps has not announced a replacement.

Rosenwasser was named WEWS VP/general manager in 2010, following a GM stint at WTSP Tampa. He was also a senior VP at Gannett Broadcasting.

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.
