Newsy Ramps Up For 24/7 News
New jobs posted to TVNewsCheck’s Media Job Center include an opening for a news producer at WIVB, Nexstar’s CBS affiliate in Buffalo, N.Y.
The station group chooses an executive with 34 years of local broadcasting and large market leadership experience to oversee its WIVB (CBS) and WNLO.
The reinstatement of a regular sportscast during the 6 p.m. news at Nexstar’s CBS affil in Buffalo, N.Y., began Monday after almost a two-year absence. Dominic Mancuso, the new GM, and News Director Lisa Polster made the decision. The move is in keeping with Mancuso’s stated goal of rectifying some decisions made by previous management when the station was owned by Media General.
Lisa Polster has been the interim news director since Scott Levy left in August of 2016 to become a news director in Kansas City. She was previously the news director at WKBW, the cross-town rival she left two years ago to become an executive news producer of the morning program Wake Up! under Levy.
WIVB Buffalo, N.Y., News Director Scott Levy has confirmed that the Media General-owned CBS affiliate is planning to start a 4 p.m. newscast by the end of March.
Media General’s Buffalo, N.Y., CBS affiliate has let go sports director and weekday sports anchor Steve Vesey, who had worked there for three years. The move comes a few weeks after weekend sports anchor and weekday sports reporter Lauren Brill left for a new job as a sports reporter at a Cleveland station. It also is only three nights before the Buffalo Bills have their preseason opener.
