It’s another major shakeup at WNYW. The Fox flagship has dropped its investigative unit led by Arnold Diaz. Tuned In has learned that Diaz and the three producers assigned to that unit have been axed. Sources confirm that the senior investigative correspondent, and his Shame on You segment, is gone from WNYW. Diaz has amassed more than 40 Emmy Awards for consumer reporting. The Brooklyn-born Diaz started at Fox 5 in 2006. He spent more than two decades at WCBS/Channel 2, before going national with ABC’s 20/20 in 1995.
A WNYW spokesperson refused comment to Tuned In, but VP/GM Lew Leone told TVSpy “…We want to thank him for his many contributions to FOX 5.”
