Re: Gray: no furloughs planned

Lovin: Gray says no layoffs or furloughs. No such guarantee yet from Sinclair. If they’re going to ask for loyalty from their employees, I think it’s fair to praise companies that are going to bat for workers who are covering this pandemic. Hence why I’m applauding Gray for its stance. It is possib...

Re: Gray: no furloughs planned

12’s parent company, Gray, says despite the downturn in advertising revenue that it’s not planning on any furloughs.. Tegna says it is requiring most of its workers to take a week off unpaid before June. Let’s see which direction Sinclair (25-66) and Meredith (5) go... Good for Gray to taking a pri...

Re: Sinclair ruining FSD

Can’t get much worse. I’ll take my chances with advocating for changes that focus on improving working conditions and the quality of journalism that raises ratings and in turn revenue for broadcasters. Don’t kid yourself Stink. It can get a lot worse. You want change and you are going to get it. Yo...

Re: Sinclair ruining FSD

So that end apparently justifies the means? Step over the bodies of your employees to make profits. Companies like Sinclair will be able to find warm bodies of unemployed workers when all this is over and pay them even cheaper wages. In your mind, it’s just “business.” Workers are just a number on ...

Re: Sinclair ruining FSD

Beer: that is exactly the problem. You say “ any loyalty to an employer in this day and age is gone”. It’s backwards. The company isn’t loyal to its employees. If companies were to reduce their profits, take the short term hit, they would have an immensely loyal workforce and likely have a bigger r...

Re: Sinclair ruining FSD

R: absolutely. No doubt about it that medical workers on the front lines of battling this pandemic and putting their lives on the line deserve to be treated better. Large corporations and those that run them need to understand this isn’t about profits. They need to help the workers who will help th...

Re: Spirit Week

Lovin: Ask people what they want? Why would the HR Director/Party Planner do that? She’d be outta a job. Better for her to plan an event, have little participation from news because everything is planned for midday when: a) the morning team has gone, b) the dayside team is out working, and c) is all...

Read the previous posts to get the answers to your questions. If you can’t read, that’s your problem, not mine, pal. If you don’t like the answers, once again I’m not here to please you, buddy boy.

You’re an idiot... specifically.
See Stink, that’s the problem with you. When asked a specific question, you can’t answer.
You call me an idiot?

Let’s start with the very basics of following corporate safety guidelines, then follow the advice of the Society of Professional Journalists for good measure.
Still pretty vague.
What are they not doing? Specifically.

Re: Spirit Week

None of the reporters or photographers I’ve worked with (both at 25-66 and our competitors) feel they have been given adequate protection. We’ve been given some cleaning supplies and we’re told to wash our hands. That’s about it. And then we get notes from management about how hard people who were ...

Re: How long until shows are anchored from home?

Why? I question yours all the time... But once again you’re off topic. Care to add anything, Beer, to the conversation about in-home anchoring? Or do you just prefer to kiss Dudley’s profanity laced butt and show your ignorance... Yes I do. Stink, the topics here are in constant flux. So, fuck you.

Re: Spirit Week

Beer: what do I want from management? I believe I’ve laid that out in multiple posts. As far as what I would 25-66 management do to address the stressful time. How about keeping your focus on the staff that are sent out in the field to cover the impact of COVID-19 on our towns and our neighbors. Wh...
