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:
Creative Services Director
