Bill McAllister, who served as Gov. Sarah Palin's spokesman, will be a television reporter again. McAllister will leave his current job as communications director for the Alaska Department of Law next week and begin reporting for KTVA in Anchorage, according to a story in the Anchorage Daily News:
McAllister, 55, reported on politics for KTUU, Channel 2, and left the station to work for Palin.McAllister will likely replace former reporter-anchor Matt Felling, who quit this week to become Sen. Lisa Murkowski's communications director.
He moved to the Department of Law in 2009 after serving for 11 months as Palin's spokesman.
KTVA's news director, Stacy Feger-Pellessier, said the station was "thrilled" to have McAllister coming on staff. McAllister said he won't be reporting on Palin. "In fact, I'm not going to be doing just politics, whereas at Channel 2 that was like my whole thing," he said.
Update: Oh, wait...
