Fox2 job postings

Post by SolarMax » Mon Sep 30, 2019 10:45 am

WJBK Fox2 has posted a number of job openings. Some in sales, technical and graphics areas, but interesting that one is for "Meteorologist, Regular, Full-time."
Adding on, someone leaving, or part-timer/temp changing status?

Management posts jobs of talent whose contracts are about to expire in order to scare them into signing a bad deal or scare them into quitting. Great business!

There's more than one fill-in at Fox2. What or who "now" are you talking about? IMO, two I"m aware of, Lori Pinson and Jill Washburn, are excellent, both are degreed meteorologists and know their stuff.

Still trying to fill the shoes of Jessica Starr. Such a shame.

Pinson is...from Penn State. Great program. Washburn is not. She has the typical "certificate."

A 6 month on-line course with a certificate does not give one an AMS seal. Thank you for playing.

I think Lori does a terrific job. I like their whole crew at Fox 2 really.

They don't resort to idiotic chicken little tactics like Rexroth and Bailey.

To whom are you referring?


I think the Fox2 crew does pretty good, especially relative to 4 and 7.

Jill Washburn is a seasoned pro, who has handled a variety of assignments over the years. She's great!
