MILWAUKEE -- If you live in the Milwaukee area and recognize the name George Mallet, it is
because he has already spent several years as an anchor and reporter for TODAY'S TMJ4 (WTMJ-
TV). Mallet is rejoining the NBC affiliate, owned by The E.W. Scripps Company (NYSE: SSP), on
April 20th.

Mallet reunites with former colleagues Carole Meekins and Charles Benson and joins Shannon Sims and Steve Chamraz to round out the station's seasoned team of weeknight evening anchors. Mallet was a respected and steady presence on TODAY'S TMJ4 from 2007-2011.

Mallet returns to Milwaukee by way of WPTZ-TV which serves parts of Upstate New York and
Northern Vermont. He was anchor of the station's evening newscasts since 2011. While in New
York, George returned regularly to Milwaukee and feels the move back is meant to be. "I still own a
home in the Milwaukee area," Mallet says. "I guess I always knew that if the opportunity arose, I
would find my way back. It's a community I know and care about."

"George and I have a long history," said TODAY'S TMJ4 News Director Janet Hundley. "We worked
together in North Carolina and I learned so much from him. He's a great writer and journalist. I'm
already so proud of our team here at TMJ4. It's great to have George back home to be part of our
future."

TODAY'S TMJ4 Vice President and General Manager Joe Poss said, "We are so pleased to
welcome George back. He understands the community we serve and the sense of responsibility we
feel to tell important, meaningful local stories. He's a great fit for Milwaukee."

In addition to his work in Milwaukee and New York, Mallet has served as an anchor and reporter in
Philadelphia, Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina as well as Washington, North Carolina. His work as a
journalist has been honored by The Associated Press as well as the Television Academy of Arts &
Sciences. He is a graduate of the University of Delaware.
