By the numbers

Post by lovinlife101 » Sun Oct 06, 2019 3:42 pm

Here’s how many people work on-air locally:

WJRT: 22

WNEM: 19

WEYI/WSMH: 16

These are reporters and anchors.

If you will notice, the entity that is two stations has the fewest people.

Still at 16, including the semi-retired one.

Is there an echo in here or is the ignorance multiplying?

The point is, they come and go, but they never grow.

ABC 12 has the most amount of newscasts, so they need the larger staff.
As far as I know, TV25/66 doesn't air a noon, nor weekend morning news.
66 doesn't have a 4,5 or 6 PM news on weekdays.

25-66 has double the ad time, the least staff and the lowest wages. Air Boris and the other must runs and keep profits high for the GM.

Jeanna’s position will be replaced. But many of the positions (including many behind the scenes) won’t be coming back...
