News Director (7/8)



  1. Unsurprisingly, The Hill is coming to NewsNation. https://deadline.com/2022/05/nexstar-newsnation-earnings-the-hill-1235020231/
  2. Given how much news stations do now, it would be a lot easier on the schedule to open the door to vacations at almost any time of year, so that you don't end up with too many people cramming vacations into the same weeks. In exchange, I would black out important events that you know are coming. For everyone, that might be high-viewership periods like the time around the Super Bowl or the Academy Awards. For us, that might be the week of the Big 12 basketball tournament, or in 2023, the NFL draft, or the week of an election.
  3. I've noticed stations being more lenient in May when it comes to out-of-town graduations.
  4. WETM in Elmira fired its anchor (who is also the ND), who is seen on video from what appears to be a private vigilante group with no law enforcement training. There is no criminal case either. https://www.fingerlakesdailynews.com/2022/05/02/1423738/
  5. The rumor is more layoffs are coming at regular CNN, could be announced next week.
  6. New weekend meteorologist at WDAF-TV (all five on staff will have AMS seal, I think).
  7. New morning meteorologist at KCTV: https://www.instagram.com/p/CcRHmLxO-PK/
  8. I happened to catch Story TV late last night (now on KMBC's .3), and they were airing the "end of the world" stuff that appeared on the History Channel 10-12 years ago. After Armageddon, Mayan Mystery and so on...
  9. One of my co-workers will be showing up soon. I don't know what shift she will work. She said PVI tries to match the personality with the shift and existing staff. https://www.facebook.com/photo/?fbid=410403580899005&set=a.215219893750709
  10. New Coke lasted longer. I feel badly for the employees; I know one who hopped from one Atlanta-based media outlet to produce for CNN+. Maybe she can get her old job back. I don't know.
  11. Stations in New York and Philadelphia, and to some extent Washington, are having illness problems right now. You don't make people work marathon double shifts in top ten markets unless it is an emergency.

    In Memoriam
