Congratulations to Indy 500 Winner Juan Pablo Montoya!

Greetings:

I hope you had a great holiday.

Our holiday edition brings you news of TWO new News Directors, TWO new ND openings, and THREE paid ads, including an ad for a General Manager’s position at a well regarded station in the Upper Midwest.

The ND changes leave our count of openings at 30. Two of those openings are featured in ads below, including a rare display ad.

Just TWO items in Names in the News, but SIX GM changes, four in the same company.

Spend a few minutes of your holiday weekend by learning more below!

RTDNA 5-15-15

New News Director Openings:

KTSM-TV, El Paso, TX…we told you in April 12th edition that REY CHAVEZ was returning to KTSM as ND. 30 years ago he was a director there. He’s already left the station, though I don’t know the particulars of his departure. Of course, it may have something to do with a GM change (more on that in our GM Notes section below.)

KTMF/KWYB-TV, Missoula, MT…this Cowles owned ABC/FOX is looking for a new news director to replace the late KAYLEE SCOLATTI. Please check out the station’s display ad below for details about this opportunity.

Newly Named News Directors:

KSTP-TV, Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN…congratulations to ANNE WITTENBORG who’s been promoted to News Director for this Hubbard-owned ABC affiliate. Click here for more. She first joined the station in 2000 as a producer, left for a job at a production company for three years, and then returned in 2008 as Executive Producer. Anne was later promoted to Managing Editor, then Assistant News Director in 2013. She earlier worked in Eau Claire and Madison. Anne’s been the Acting ND since LINDSAY RADFORD left to become ND for KMGH-TV in Denver. Lindsay was ND here for seven years.

White

White

WOWK-TV, Huntington/Charleston, WV…apparently we’re REALLY late in reporting that KEN WHITE is the new news director for this West Virginia Media owned CBS affiliate.

He’s been working in radio and public relations since then. Ken replaces ELLEN MILLER who left the station last fall after nine months as ND.

Congratulations to old friend TOM BIER who’s retiring from WISC-TV in Madison, WI, after 41 years of service. He’s been the GM there since November, 2011, station manager before that, and was the ND for 23 years. Tom served one term as Chair of RTNDA. The station is advertising its search for his replacement above.

One note. Last week, in reporting MATT MILLER‘s move to Albany as ND for WTEN-TV, I told you that the man he was replacing, DAVE CILIBERTI, had moved to Columbus, OH, but I told you the wrong station. Dave’s the new ND at WCMH-TV. Apologies.

DAVID CANDELARIA is now the GM at KTSM-TV in El Paso, TX (as noted above).

Greetings:

You’d think the rating period was already over, given the FOUR new ND openings we have in this week’s report. And there’s just ONE new ND to tell you about, so that leaves our count of open ND jobs at 30.

ONE of those openings (at a network o-and-o!) is featured in one of our TWO paid help wanted ads this week. You’ll also note a new ad below from RTDNA, touting an upcoming webinar on ethics.

There’s a lot of items in Names in the News, and there are FOUR obituaries to share.

All this and much more as you read on….

RTDNA 5-15-15

New News Director Openings:

Schiller

Schiller

KYW-TV, Philadelphia, PA…we first told you Friday afternoon that SUSAN SCHILLER‘s 40 year career working for CBS will come to an end next month when she leaves her job as ND for this o-and-o. Susan’s been at KYW for 14 years, has worked for several other CBS o-and-o’s, and also spent time as a network producer in New York. Her note to the staff can be found here, and her entire bio is here, posted last year when Susan was inducted into the Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia Hall of Fame.

Hoyt

Hoyt

WTOL/WUPW-TV, Toledo, OH…CJ HOYT will leave this Raycom owned CBS/FOX duopoly by the end of June. Here’s the memo he sent to his staff, which explains the reason for his departure. He’s been ND here for almost four years, and came from another Raycom station, WFIE-TV in Evansville, IN, where he spent 3 + years as ND. CJ’s also been a news director in Layfatette, LA, and has worked in Knoxville, Greenville, SC, and Lincoln, NE.

Maliska

Maliska

WGXA-TV, Macon, GA…GAVIN MALISKA has left this FOX affiliate after more than three years as ND. The station is now owned by Sinclair, which purchased it last year from Frontier Broadcasting. Gavin’s came to Macon to work with the GM there, BECKY SWAN: they’d worked together in Missoula, MT where Gavin spent a year as ND. He’s also been an ND in Orlando, Indianapolis, and Panama City, and worked for FOX o-and-o’s in Chicago and Detroit.

Eaton

Eaton

WRBL-TV, Columbus, GA…SAM EATON has resigned as news director for this Media General owned CBS affiliate. He’d been the ND here for just over a year. Sam was an assistant news director in Augusta, GA, a producer in Charlotte and Columbia, SC, and worked as a reporter in Lynchburg and Midland, TX. His replacement will be the fifth ND in five years here.

Devlin full 4-27-15

Newly Named News Directors:

Miller

Miller

WTEN/WXXA-TV, Albany, NY…MATT MILLER returns to the ND chair as he takes over at this Media General owned ABC/FOX duopoly. He’s currently the Senior Executive Producer for WBNS-TV in Columbus, OH. He’ll have spent one year in Columbus when he leaves at the end of June. Ironically, the man he replaces in Albany is DAVE CILIBERTI, who left Albany to move to Columbus to be ND at WCMH-TV there. Matt’s a former ND in Cincinnati (where he’s worked at all four stations.) He also started a news department in Myrtle Beach and worked as an anchor/reporter in Macon, GA, and spent two years in PR.

She’s spent almost 40 years working for CBS in a wide variety of roles, ranging from positions at several CBS o-and-o’s to jobs as a producer at the CBS Evening News with Dan Rather. Her complete bio can be found here, posted when she was inducted into the Broadcast Pioneers of Philadelphia Hall of Fame last year.

Thursday, May 7, 2015 UPDATE #2

Kalee Scolatti

Kalee Scolatti

KALEE SCOLATTI, the news director for KTMF/KWYB-TV, the ABC/FOX duopoly in Missoula, MT, was shot and killed last night in her home in Missoula. She was 34. Kalee appears to be one of the victims of a double murder and attempted suicide

Details are sketchy, but here’s an article (updated Thursday night May 7, 2015) from The Missoulian, the local newspaper, and here’s the story from her station’s website. I’m sure both sites will update their stories so I’d advise you to check back to those sites.

Kalee had been news director for six months. Her Linkedin page says she had been the News Production/Promotion Manager for more than nine years before her promotion to ND last December. Tomorrow would have marked her tenth anniversary at the station.

Our sympathy to her family, co-workers, and friends.

regards,

Rick Gevers

Thursday, May 7, 2015 UPDATE:

Rob Elmore

Elmore

Breaking news from the number two market, where ROB ELMORE has been named News director for KABC-TV, which you know is the ABC o-and-o there. He’s spent the last 17 years as ND for another ABC o-and-o, WTVD-TV in Raleigh/Durham, NC.

Earlier, he’d been an ND and Assistant News Director for WHEC-TV in Rochester, NY, and also worked in Nashville and for another Rochester station. Here’s his linkedin page which tells the whole story.

At KABC, he replaces CHERYL FAIR who was promoted to be GM of the station last February after 20 years as news director.

We’ll have more on this in our full newsletter later this week.

And other one item…we now have this link to an obituary for longtime news director HARVEY COX. A memorial service is being held today for Harvey. We told last week that Harvey died suddenly last Saturday at the age of 70.

regards,

Rick Gevers

Tuesday, May 5, 2015 UPDATE:

Funeral services for HARVEY COX will be held Thursday in Jonesboro, AR.  Here’s the link to the obituary. Harvey was 70 years old when he died suddenly on Saturday afternoon while doing yard work.

Monday, May 4, 2015 UPDATE:

As promised, we have an update on the passing of longtime news director HARVEY COX.  I’m told that Harvey died of an apparent heart attack Saturday afternoon while doing yard work at his home.  His son went outside to tell Harvey, an ardent fan, that the Mets game was about to start.  His son and wife performed CPR without success.

Harvey will be laid to rest on Thursday in Arkansas.  Final details are still being worked on, and I’ll post the here when they are finalized.  He is survived by his wife of 44 years and six children.

One addendum to the item below.  Harvey also worked as a news director for WCPX-TV (now WKMG-TV) in Orlando.

regards,

Rick Gevers

Greetings:

Just as we were finalizing this week’s newsletter, we were saddened to learn about the death of veteran news director HARVEY COX. We don’t have many details: the ones we do have are in our obituary section below. But I will update this page when I learn more.

Otherwise, just ONE new ND opening this week, with ONE new ND opening, leaving our count of open ND jobs at 27 stations.

TWO of those openings are featured in help wanted ads below, along with an ad for a new corporate news job at one of the largest broadcast companies.

We have several news managers on the move in our Names in the News section, and please be sure to check out the VERY unusual move by a Cleveland GM unhappy with his station’s landlord.

Longtime news director HARVEY COX died Saturday, May 2nd. Harvey most recently served more than ten years as ND for WMGM-TV in Atlantic City before new owners took the station in a different direction. Earlier he was a news director at KAIT-TV in Jonesboro, AR, and twice served as ND for WSPA-TV in Greenville-Spartanburg, SC. Here’s his Linkedin page. (Monday update.  Harvey also was an ND in Orlando for then WCPX-TV, now WKMG-TV).  I just heard from Harvey less than two weeks ago, when he alerted me to the passing of his former WMGM-TV General Manager, RON SMITH.

I’m hoping to get more details about Harvey’s death and arrangments…and will update this website when I do. Please check back during the week.

General Manager News:

PAMELA BARBER moves from GSM to GM of Hearst’s Tampa independent, WMOR-TV. She replaces KENNETH LUCAS who’s retiring in June after 17 years as GM.

This story is not normally in our purview (there’s a $5 word you don’t see very often) but I couldn’t resist including it. Just what do you do when your TV station has mice? One Cleveland GM had, shall we say, an interesting tactic. Here’s the story.
