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.
New jobs posted to TVNewsCheck’s MediaJobCenter include openings for a general manager, assistant news director, executive producer, news producers, sales director, digital sales, meteorologists, engineers and reporters in 12 different markets.
WJZY, the Fox-owned affiliate in Charlotte, spent 18 months trying to find an organ donor for an Army vet in desperate need of a kidney. Due to the unfortunate passing of a 10 year old, the vet got his kidney. “Without the support [FOX 46] gave me as a veteran, as a person, and the love that you all showed me, I wouldn’t have made it.”
