Everybody loves LAUREN RIDGLEY, and when she left WISN in Milwaukee it left an empty chair in her CSD office. Luckily for the Hearst ABC affil, they had SCOTT HUTCHCROFT in the bullpen as Assistant Creative Services Director. Yes, they took the Assistant away from him and named him the new CSD. He’s been at the station since July of 2013 and before that he was in Knoxville at Gray’s WVLT as Sr. Writer Producer. Other stops along the way for Scott include being the commercial Producer/Editor at KXRM in Colorado Springs and being as Associate Producer for Macomb, Illinois’ Satellite Education Network. Let’s hear it for Iowa native Scott – one, two three…Well Dunne!
