Happiness is a Warm TV

WNCN (and former WRAL) reporter is leaving the news business

WNCN reporter Beau Minnick announced today that he is leaving CBS North Carolina – and the news business.

Minnick, who made the announcement on Twitter and Facebook, said he will be the senior communications manager for the Raleigh Chamber of Commerce starting in March.

Minnick has been a political and general assignment reporter at the station. He worked at WRAL from 2007 until 2014 before joining WNCN.

From his Facebook announcement: “TV news brought me to this area and I will always treasure the time I’ve spent with all my colleagues at WNCN and WRAL, along with those at WTVD, Spectrum, the N & O and all the other outlets. They are hard-working and have a passion for what they do. I will still get to see all of you as I will be right here in this city we call home!”
