WOW, THAT’S A LOT OF EMPTY DESKS!

When Tegna completes its acquisition of WBNS from Dispatch Broadcast Group, it might want to do a head count just before signing the final papers.

Checking out the Columbus, OH station’s job listings on its website shows a total of 12 openings – more than half of them  department manager/newsroom manager positions.

Why so many openings?

And one of them is evidently the news director’s job.

We’re especially charmed by one sentence in the job posting:
“10TV is one of the last family-owned power houses in the industry.”

Suggestion: Add in the phrase “but not for long.”

Unless they move quickly, they’re gonna have to update that job description.

Here are the open positions:

*News Director
Creative Services Director
*Senior EP
*Digital EP
*Special Projects EP
*Assignment Manager
Creative Services Producer
*MMJ
*Assignment Editor
*News Producer
*Associate Producer
Sales AE

*Newsroom position
