Out in the Bay area, blogger Rich Lieberman reports that CBS-owned KPIX is thisclose to handing chief meteorologist Paul Deanno, a steady anchor role IN ADDITION to his weather duties.
The sticking point is, as it always is….$$$$$.
Deanno wants more for the additional duties and why not?
Deanno has pulled anchor duties in the past on a substitute basis and gotten good marks.
And with the heavy reliance that virtually every station places on weather coverage, it would be a bonus if the anchor could read the lead and then head for the weather center.
