August 19, 2011

Greetings:

You might be able to blame the summer doldrums, but it’s been a slow week.  There’s just ONE new ND to introduce you to, and, to the best of my knowledge, NO new ND openings.

That brings our list of open ND jobs to just 26.

Also this week, we’re re-running an ad for an EP opening in Green Bay, and we have an obituary for a pioneering female news director.

That’s all below…after this week’s changes:

New News Director Openings:

None, that I know of.  If you know of any updates to our list, please email me at: rick@rickgevers.com

Newly Named News Directors:

Daley-Hinkens

WFRV-TV, Green Bay, WI…CARMELYN DALEY-HINKENS is the new ND here.  It’s her second stint at this CBS station now owned by Nexstar.  She was a producer and reporter here in the early 90′s before moving to WISC-TV in Madison where she eventually became ND, serving in that role for almost six years.  Carmelyn moved to Texas for a while to accompany her husband to a new position there, but they returned to Wisconsin in 2008 when she joined WFRV as an EP.  She replaces LEE HITTER who left the station in June after 17 years as ND.

Also, last we week we reported that KATE GLOVER was leaving KMIR-TV in Palm Desert, CA, but we didn’t know where she was headed.  Newsblues is reporting that Kate is joining KNSD-TV in San Diego as an EP.
