Submitted Item: News/Talk 870 WHCU Assistant News Director Greg Fry is making the move to Albany, NY—and the top talker in the Finger Lakes is on the hunt for a replacement. Greg moved quickly from news reporter/anchor into the role of management in the newsroom. He also picked up duties as the Saturday Morning Newswatch host, Evening Newswatch host, and primary substitute for Dave Vieser on the Morning Newswatch.
Greg moves on—and in a time when jobs are scarce, WHCU has a full time opening for a news reporter/anchor who will do live updates, additional pre-recorded updates for the 4 other stations at the Cayuga Radio Group, as well as nighttime reporting. There is a lot of opportunity for advancement in this particular role.
We’re especially interested in fellow New York state broadcasters who may want to make the move to Ithaca and work for Saga Communications, with a nice benefits and a pleasant work environment. Some on-air experience is needed; news writing skills are a must; and you should have a nose which sniffs out stories without rewriting from the newspaper or picking up on the obvious.
In many cases, this station leads the newspaper and other media in town when it comes to what’s making news—so we’ll look for those with the ability to “enterprise”. This position will be filled quickly, so rush a resume and mp3 to firstname.lastname@example.org or to the News Director at Cayuga Radio Group; 1751 Hanshaw Rd; Ithaca, NY 14850.
