Good chance of that happening, but likely a GSM or NSM from a smaller market who will have to make all the mistakes everyone else made. Sales seems to be the route to GM a lot.


You're never too old to learn something stupid.

It’ll be an in-over-their-head first timer who will tow the company line. Likely a former assistant sales manager from Walgreens.
That's "toe" the line, unless this is reference to a Sinclair water-ski team or other such abstract line of thought.

Well Sinclair finally put out a news release that Chad was becoming KOMO’s new GM:

https://www.prnewswire.com/news-release ... 36227.html

You only put out a press release for one of two reasons: (a) for it to be picked up by other media outlets or (b) to appease an egomaniac.

Well, none of the local papers cared to write an article about Conklin’s so-called promotion after running 25-66 into the ground... so that will be a blow to the egomaniac in chief.

The last GM who ran KOMO and left for LA had significant news coverage in the local papers and trade websites by comparison.

I’m sure your ex GM is crying crocodile tears because the Flint Urinal didn’t do a story on his departure.
He’ll be crying all the way to the top.

Stink. Enjoy your many stops to nowhere during your long and miserable career.

Oh, Beer.

Hopefully on “one of my many stops” we’ll get to work together. I’d love to be your boss one day. Imagine all the fun we/I would have helping educate you!

Yeah, that would be great, but I don’t think dishwashers are ever in charge of anything but cleaning dishes..

Beer: I don’t judge (unlike you). If you’re happy washing dishes, I’m happy for you. You need to live your best life... just make sure you and your only friend stay six feet apart and wash your hand frequently. Love ya, buddy.

I like the "Oh, Beer" statement. Was just missing an exclamation point. Oh, Beer! Yay!
