The WDAY sports staff includes:

Dom Izzo – Sports Director

Joel Sipper – Reporter/Photographer

Taylor Mankle – Reporter

Zach Staton – News/Sports Reporter

Anchor/Reporter Mark Pearson recently left for a similar job at WAND in Decatur, IL. Recent Florida State grad Blake Devine was hired in April as a news/sports MMJ. It looked like he would replace Zach Staton, who would logically be promoted to replace Pearson.

Interesting to now see this post.

Perhaps its EEO? We don't know.
