The KCPQ 13 Job Board

5
(1)

There are many reasons for the high turnover at KCPQ 13/FOX. Lousy pay, shuffling of news programming, budget, in-fighting, and a pandemic. Recent ND, Erik Breon, had just twelve months at Q13.

Breon faced turmoil and conflict between folks in the newsroom, the estrangement of management and staff due to social distancing, Zoom calls rather than in-person staff meetings and budget constraints, much of which would be blamed on Covid. Faced with these disadvantages and health issues, Breon’s extended medical leave resulted with his departure recently.

Sheila Oliver has been appointed senior vice president and general manager. An acting assistant ND is in place.
And, as of 3 p.m. today, these positions are open at Q13 —

  1. Q13 is my first choice for news. Some of what I see is a disappointment. There is too much fluff and nonsense. Anchors inject a little too much of their personal business into the broadcasts. As the Mary Tyler Moore show’s Lou Grant always used to say, I Hate Cute.

  2. Enjoy the corporate hell on Earth monkeys. There is no such thing as radical politics + workplace = good stuff. Eat it and poop out the desired talking points for your masters and hope the drink and drug will erase your workplace memories each night. Enjoy!

    1. Plus the fact that it is tv news and there are the egos involved. TV news anchors love to take selfies, post trivial messages on social media and some think the news set is the place to show off their dance moves. Silly stuff. Being a news director in this environment might be like herding a bunch of feral cats.

  3. I believe the actions of many of Q13’s “news readers” on social media have hurt their station in terms of credibility and ratings. (Q13 was also my go to local news station but no longer.) I really don’t need to be force fed their like’s, dislike’s, drinking habits, sexual perversions, or moral judgments. Too many news readers want to “be the news” and have an insatiable desire to have followers and create “viral” tweets with witty or edgy comments.

    Maybe they should just deliver the news in a professional manner without bias or editorializing. Just a thought. Yeah just dreaming…………..
