WGRZ Buffalo News Director Abruptly Fired

Kate Glover wasn’t WGRZ Buffalo, N.Y.’s news director long enough to become a household name, but the Tegna NBC affiliate’s GM, Jim Toellner, decided Wednesday she was at the station long enough. A Western New York native who was hired last September, Glover was fired after only seven months on the job.
