May 21, 2017

Greetings:

We’re down to just 15 open news director positions, following a week in which FOUR positions were filled and just ONE opened up.

And if you’re asking, that’s about as low a number that I can recall in 21+ years of keeping track.

ONE of those open ND jobs is among our SIX paid help wanted ads this week.

We also welcome The Kneeland Project back to these pages with an ad for an upcoming seminar. That’s just below.

We now have details on arrangements for GARY HANSON, whose death from cancer we told you about on Thursday. That’s below.

Also below, a new GM at a San Francisco o-and-o, details about the future of one of my daily reads, Newsblues, an intriguing look at how a major metropolitan daily is succeeding with its digital products, a new Assistant ND in Alaska, and some very familiar names have new jobs both in and out of TV.

Finally, a shameless personal note.

I still have two tickets left for next Sunday’s Indianapolis 500. It’s the 101st running of this great event and should be a terrific time. The seats are in the Tower Terrace (behind the pits along the front straight, Section 48, row BB).

They’re $115 each. If you’re interested please let me know ASAP.

Do you know of someone who deserves a little Kneeland?

(Hint: it might be you.)

The Kneeland Project is accepting applications now for their September 6-9, 2017 session in Austin, Texas. Applications are due Friday 6/16/17 and are available by clicking here.

Thanks to Kneeland’s generous funders, this opportunity is nearly free for 18 selected news managers. The Kneeland Project pays for all tuition costs as well as hotel and several meals. Participants cover only their transportation and a few meals — Kneeland takes care of the rest.

In addition to tackling core Kneeland subjects like ethical leadership, time-saving strategies and results-driven digital ideas, we are covering race, religion and election coverage in our September session. You can’t miss this opportunity.

In a recent survey of Kneeland Fellows, 100% reported they still regularly use lessons learned at Kneeland, believe that time spent at Kneeland improved their career and said they have recommended Kneeland to a friend or colleague.

The Kneeland Project is an intensive program unlike any other. It’s practical. It’s highly interactive. It produces long-lasting results.

Only 18 journalists will be selected for this program. Apply today!

Newly Named News Directors:

Blandford

WDTN-TV, Dayton, OH…LONI BLANDFORD transfers within Nexstar to become ND for this ABC affiliate. Here’s the note from GM JOE ABOUZEID. She’s spent the past 3+ years at another Nexstar station, WISH-TV in Indianapolis as Managing Editor and (first) EP/Investigations. She’s also worked in Las Vegas, Nashville and Greenville, SC. This vacancy was created when DENISE ECK left to become ND for WSMV-TV in Nashville.

KWQC-TV, Davenport, IA…STEPHANIE HEDRICK heads east to become ND for this Gray TV owned NBC affiliate. She’s spent the last four years as the ND for Gray’s KOLN-TV in Lincoln.

Lauber

Lauber

KOLN-TV, Lincoln, NE…MIKEL LAUBER moves within Gray as he has been named ND for this CBS affiliate. Mikel tells me the move gets him closer to family. He’s been the ND for Gray’s KWTX-TV in Waco for the past three years, and earlier spent three years as ND for the company’s WSAW-TV in Wausau, WI, where he also anchored. He replaces STEPHANIE HEDRICK who ironically also came from KWTV where she had been an EP. Stephanie spent four years as ND here before moving to KWQC-TV, as noted above.

Rudman

KVAL/KMTR-TV, Eugene, OR…BERT RUDMAN returns to the lower 48 as the news director for this Sinclair operation. Bert spent the past four years as the ND for KTVA-TV in Anchorage.

In Eugene, he succeeds LARRY JOHNSON who was the ND here for three years before leaving in February.

Obituary:

Hanson

Hanson

Funeral services for longtime educator, former news director, and past RTNDA chairman GARY HANSON will be held this week in Kent, OH. Details of the visitation, service, and suggestions for memorial contributions are contained in this tribute.

As you know from my note earlier this week, Gary died this week after a seven year battle with cancer. He was 66.

Gary was a news director in North Dakota and Youngstown, OH (where I first got to know him 33 years ago). He spent 13 years as ND for WKBN-TV before turning to teaching at Kent State, where he worked with his wife LuETT.

You’ll want to watch the video on Gary and his cancer battle featured at the end of this story.

The possible demise of Newsblues (much like that of MARK TWAIN) has been greatly exaggerated. While it’s true that founder/surly editor MIKE JAMES is retiring, former ND RICK ILER is buying Newsblues and will continue its daily subversive look (his words, not mine) at our business. All the details in this news release. We wish Mike, a fellow racing fan, a long and happy retirement.

The New York Times has an interesting look at how its competitor, The Washington Post, has found success in the evolving digital world.

ALEXIS FERNANDEZ joins KTUU-TV in Anchorage as Assistant ND. She’s a native Alaskan who most recently worked as an Anchor/Reporter at KTVA-TV in Anchorage. She’s also worked in Fairbanks and Tucson, AZ.

We have updates on new jobs for a number of former news directors and general mangers.

JIM PRATHER, longtime GM at KTNV-TV in Las Vegas and a former news director, is now consulting the Las Vegas Review Journal. Jim tells me he is leading strategic development for the daily newspaper’s on-line video platform.

LEE ROSENTHAL, a former ND in San Francisco, Boston, and Indianapolis, has joined Franklin Templeton Investments in the San Francisco Bay Area. He’s leading a global team in the creation of engaging digital marketing content with a focus on video, podcasts and webinars.

DAVID REESE, former ND for KMIR-TV in Palm Springs, returns to Los Angeles as the Assistant ND for KTTV, the FOX o-and-o-there. The move reunites him with ND KRIS KNUTSEN: they worked together at KNBC-TV in Los Angeles.

KEVIN WALSH moves south from CBS o-and-o KOVR/KMAX-TV in Sacramento to become VP/GM of the company’s KPIX-TV in San Francisco. He’s been the GM in Sacramento for more than eight years and held sales positions at the duopoly before that. Here’s the memo to KOVR/KMAX staff and the news release from CBS.

TRACEY ROGERS is leaving her gig as GM for WMC-TV, the Raycom Media owned station in Memphis, for a new opportunity. She’s a former ND at WMC who left for three years to serve as GM of sister Raycom station KAIT-TV in Jonesboro, AR, before returning to Memphis 3+ years ago.

No official word yet on where she’s headed, but there have been numerous online reports suggesting she’s headed to WKRN-TV in Nashville, where an all-staff meeting has been called for 2:00 tomorrow. As MIKE JAMES of Newsblues likes to say: “Probably just a coincidence.”

We’ll have more next week.

Friday, May 19, 2017 UPDATE:

Gary Hanson

I’m saddened to tell you that GARY HANSON died yesterday after a seven year battle with cancer.  He was 66.

During his career, Gary was a news director, RTNDA chair, and longtime educator at Kent State.

Our friendship goes back more than 30 years. He was the news director at the CBS affiliate in Youngstown when I was at the CBS affiliate in Toledo.  Gary nominated me when I ran for the RTNDA Board of Directors, and I returned the favor when he ran for chair.

More details about his life and many accomplishments are in this release from Kent State, where he taught for years.

Our sympathy to his wife and teaching colleague LuETT HANSON.

We’ll have more details on arrangements in our full newsletter later this weekend.

regards,

Rick Gevers

Greetings:

I hope you had a pleasant Mothers’ Day.

And I’m guessing it was a pleasant weekend for the TWO new news directors we’ll tell you about. And to my knowledge, there are NO newly opened ND jobs.

Our count of open news director positions now stands at 17.
ONE of those open ND jobs is listed among our FOUR Paid Help Wanted ads.

In Names in the News, we’ll tell you about a news manager on the move, offer a link to a New York Times story about Sinclair Broadcasting’s ‘must-runs’, and another link to a Columbia Journalism Review story on local news that focuses on a Florida market. We’ll also tell about new ventures for two former news directors.

Finally, apologies to NICK ORTEGO who name I misspelled in reporting his departure from WDAM-TV in Hattiesburg.

May 7, 2017

Greetings:

Another busy week with lots of news.

There are TWO new news directors in our report, and THREE new openings. And as we saw last week, TWO of those openings were created by people moving to bigger and better jobs.

That leaves just 19 stations with open news director positions.

Also this week, ONE paid help wanted ad, TWO new GMs, TWO former news directors who are retiring from post-ND jobs, and THREE obituaries.

All that and more below.

This week, meet JAMES DOUGHTY:

It is in my humble opinion that being a TV News manager is one of the most challenging jobs in the world today; however, it can also be one of the most rewarding positions. I believe whole-heartedly that a fair, calm and understanding newsroom manager is essential to provide the organization stability, consistency, and care.

My greatest strengths include inspiring and motivating others to perform at their own individual levels and at a level that will only bring positive attention to the newsroom. I have a strong passion for helping others and will strive to make sure everyone associated with the news organization remains responsible, hard-working, and successful.

JEFF MARKS writes to say he’s finishing his work with Gray Television but certainly not retiring.

I am finishing up my contract with Gray at the end of this month. They’ve been great, allowing me to travel the country coaching and training at many of their stations. (I made 23 station visits between April and December.)
It’s not exactly retirement, because I am already involved with several projects: writing, strategic planning and coaching. Anyway, just because I am now eligible for Medicare, it’s not like I’m putting myself out to pasture.
My coaching strengths are in writing, producing, teases, on-air performance, leadership and, well, coaching. Our number one job as managers is to coach, and in a lot of media organizations, that falls to the bottom of the list after budgeting, answering the boss, refereeing and a litany of urgencies and excuses that get in the way of achieving greatness.

If you need a hired gun with those skills, Jeff’s email is: jeffamarks@comcast.net

Hanson

Hanson

Sadly, the other items is about old friend GARY HANSON, a longtime news director in Youngstown and later a longtime faculty member at Kent State University. Gary and his wife LuETT both retired in June and have been traveling. But Gary’s been battling cancer for more than seven years and it appears that battle may be nearing its end. He has entered hospice, and is resting at home where he would enjoy your note of well wishes:

Gary Hanson
3225 Pine Hollow Dr.
Ravenna OH 44266

Best wishes, my friend.
