TV5 On Air Talent

Post by AuburnViewer » Tue Sep 01, 2020 12:33 pm

Is TV5 forcing their anchors to take off at least one day a week? It seem like David Custer, Meg McLeod, and Bryan Bachman are rarely together on the same newscasts.

It seems like it. I know someone that works there, who said it's a mess right now.

Speaking of 5, I read via Facebook that they have decided to not renew the contract of Ashlyn Hill. I always thought she did a good job and actually seemed happy unlike the forceful happiness that comes across.

Morale at 5 plummeted even lower (if that’s possible) after GM Julie Z was let go by Meredith corporate.

That is true. Morale is even lower. Ashlyn was let go, and there is talk of even more reductions. The paychecks are lower, and employees are working 4 days a week with that unpaid furlough day. There is no direction, and Custer is just doing stories on his friends.

They may be on air, but there’s no “talent” over there.

“Julie Z” is a bad radio dj name. Possibly her stripper name.

Isn’t it great that NABET is making things better over there? And some people want more unions.
