SYRACUSE — Plenty of recent staffing changes to report throughout CNY lately… we heard about some of these items earlier, but weren’t quite sure if they were “official” public knowledge… until this week, when the Syracuse Press Club announced them in their latest newsletter.
- WSYR-TV: Roger Mirabito, the longtime Assignment Manager who became Interim News Director after Jim Tortora left in May, is now officially the Assistant News Director. The ABC affiliate continues the search for a News Director.
- WSYR-TV: Dave Bullard, formerly the Senior Producer/Reporter at Oswego-based NPR affiliate WRVO, is now the dayside Assignment Editor at NewsChannel 9. The station is also looking to hire for nightside coverage on the desk, which explains why the job is still listed at 9wsyr.com.
- WSYR-TV: Julia Weiden joins the staff as weekend meterologist. The Cornell grad previously worked in Elmira.
