WJZY, Nexstar’s Fox affiliate in Charlotte, N.C., is undergoing a makeover. The station has “meandered as a bottom station for a long time,” says Lloyd Bucher, WJZY’s new GM, but Nexstar sees an opportunity to change that.
The Nexstar Fox affiliate in Charlotte, N.C., has a new owner, new general manager and now a new news director, all since March. I caught up with Casey Clark in the WJZY Charlotte newsroom on Thursday, his second day on the job.
KCTV, Meredith’s CBS affiliate in Kansas City, is doubling down on sports coverage with a daily, half-hour sports show called The Locker Room Show. The show is hosted by Dani Welniak and produced by Nikki Rushing. “I don’t feel an immense amount of pressure, like: oh, two women are in charge. I think it adds to the product versus adding pressure,” Rushing says.
