New jobs posted to TVNewscheck’s Media Job Center include openings for sales directors at the Nexstar duopoly in Indianapolis and Standard Media’s ABC affiliate in Lincoln, Neb.
“We’ve gotten great feedback from our viewers who have grown up watching this iconic local station and have enjoyed revisiting these fond memories from over the years,” said Katie Warthan, WTTV Indianapolis’ promotions manager.
The Nexstar Media Group is TVNewsCheck’s Station Group of the Year for 2019. Nexstar is looking for two general managers for its TV operations in Indianapolis and Champaign, Illinois.
Last week on TVNewsCheck’s Media Job Center, ads were posted for open positions at the University of Rhode Island, WISH in Indianapolis, and KETV in Omaha.
WISH, Nexstar’s CW affiliate in Indianapolis, is adding Inside INdiana Business with Gerry Dick, to its All Local All Morning Sunday morning lineup.
WXIN, Tribune’s Fox affiliate in Indianapolis, hit the road to produce its morning newscast in a town about about 20 miles from Indianapolis. It’s not easy to take a station’s morning newscast out of the studio to a remote location. But if you read some of the comments posted on WXIN’s Facebook page, you’ll see that viewers love it.
WISH, a CW affiliate, is partnering with Girls Inc. of Greater Indianapolis to increase leadership development for girls throughout the area. “With WISH and The CW’s support, Girls Inc. is able to provide programming to the supergirls of Indianapolis so they have the tools to be the super leaders of tomorrow,” said Elyssa Campodonico-Barr, Girls Inc. president.
By donating $15,000 to nonprofit, RIP Medical Debt, WXIN will forgive $1.5 million dollars in medical debt for almost one thousand people. “Every day we tell the stories that affect our viewers and when we can find a way to change the lives of the people we serve, it is a privilege,” said Jamie Aitke, WXIN’s general manager.
WTTV collected, organized and distributed 10,000 books to Indianapolis public schools as part of a new program, CBS4 Reads Book Drive. “The community’s reaction to help give students free books in Central Indiana was overwhelming,” said Kerri Cavanaugh, WTTV’s VP of news.
