News director at Channel 6 out?

Dateline: Mon 18 Aug 2008

A tip last week indicates Jason Heath, news director at WRTV Channel 6 (ABC) since 2005, may be under investigation by police for "something to do with child pornography."

Heath reportedly has been on a leave of absence for a while. A check of the website:

shows that the news director position he occupied is listed as vacant. "Jason Heath to talent consulting" is the mysterious comment on the page.

The word is that police visited both the TV station at 1319 N. Meridian and Heath's home and have his home computer.

Channel 6 is owned by McGraw Hill. A phone call this morning to Paul Montgomery, audience relationship manager at Channel 6, has not yet been returned.

Heath came to Indy from Hartford, Conn. Indiana Radio Watch in 2005 reported then that he was the fifth news director at the RTV6 in eight years.
